Thursday, March 9, 4 p.m.—RUTLAND—The Grow It! workshops for community and school garden leaders are being offered at six locations around Vermont, including the Vermont Farmers Food Center in Rutland Thursday, March 9, 4-7 p.m.
Grow It! provides timely training and networking opportunities for volunteers, coordinators, and others involved in supporting community-based gardens across the state. The Rutland workshop is presented by Vermont Community Garden Network (VCGN). Through the Grow It! workshops, VCGN brings people, ideas and resources together to help cultivate the community and school garden movement.
The March workshop will explore “Growing Community”—the role community-based gardens can play in strengthening communities and how these common spaces can serve as more than just spaces to grow food. Participants will learn strategies to boost their gardens and programs, share stories and swap ideas with fellow garden leaders.
The workshop includes a light meal. It will take place at Vermont Farmers Food Center at 251 West St, Rutland. Registration is $35. Group discounts available for three or more registrants. Sliding scale is available upon request. Preregister by visiting vcgn.org or call 802-861-4769.
