Come celebrate the official kickoff of the community gardening season in New York City!
The day will be packed with 30+ workshops on garden-related topics including: food systems education, kids’ activities, vegetable growing techniques, and designing your community garden for the present and future.
The conference will also include a panel discussion on ways to sustain your garden legacy. This year’s keynote speaker is Tony Hillary, Founder and Executive Director of Harlem Grown. Tony founded Harlem Grown to address the health and academic challenges facing public elementary school students in Harlem.
