June 25th Gardening with Benefits: How Belonging to a Garden Network Can Help Your Own Garden Thrive
Susan Sides, Diana McCall, Adam Bigelow, The Western NC Alliance for Gardens that Give
The more diversity something has, the more stability, strength, resiliency and beauty it possesses. That’s true of such things as microorganisms, flowers, herbs, insects, and birds and it’s also true for gardens that are connected to their broader community. In Western North Carolina, gardens that grow food and give it away have come together to form a network that gives each garden the stability, strength, resiliency and beauty that would be impossible had they remained disconnected.
This webinar will cover topics such as management of a garden network, how much time is involved, and keeping group momentum as well as benefits of and planning for garden tours. Anyone who is thinking about starting a garden network (big or small!), who is already part of a garden network or who wants to be inspired by what can happen when people come together to grow good food will benefit from this conversation!
Join us to hear from 3 garden managers that are part of the Gardens that Give Network in Western NC.
