Join us for this workshop looking at backyard gardening and urban food production with Darren Tinker from CERES.
Create or maintain a thriving veggie garden this summer, take a virtual tour of CERES, and learn about building sustainable urban food systems and their benefits for people’s health and the environment. It’s suitable for those who own or rent and will help you understand the basics of getting a garden started at home.
