Growing Community -Specialty Plants for Small Spaces - 6-18-22
GROWING COMMUNITY Gardens are more than seeds and soil. They have been sites of community empowerment, allowing us to connect with the land, feed family and community, and form emotional bonds. What happens when these spaces are no longer available? How can we retain the ability to steward our green spaces and our communities? During this six-part series, workshop attendees will explore how a connection to community, cultural traditions, and well-being can be achieved through gardening in small spaces. Participants will also explore how these smaller thriving green spaces serve as sites of community and habitation for residents of every shape and form. Continuing in our exploration of the importance of accessible, smaller garden spaces, facilitator Derek Thomas and our garden attendees will explore specialty plants for small spaces and how this cultivation allows for a continued connection to important cultural and culinary practices.
