Video Title:
Food in the Garden 2016: Gardens and Communities
Description:
On August 10, we explored how gardens and public green spaces have brought people together to build community, learn, and heal throughout American history. From parks, to victory gardens, to community plots, these green spaces have offered not only beautiful and calming spaces but also a place for civic engagement during critical times. It was an evening to celebrate the history of public gardens and try to answer the question: How do gardens foster community and change? The evening included a panel discussion featuring Tom Kanatakeniate Cook, Running Strong, an American Indian support organization for communities and youth across the United States Pam Hess, Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture Elin Haaga, George Washington University landscape design program Dr. Frederick Foote, The Green Road Project, a natural healing environment for wounded service members and their family members
