It’s Spring, Let’s Get Growing!
Our guest speaker Monique Bosch, landscape designer, horticulturist and community food advocate, is passionate about helping community members and youth grow nutrient dense food. She has built over 40 edible school and community gardens, including a two-acre urban farm and school farm. She teaches and speaks on ‘how to grow your own food’ as well as worm composting, microscopy, healthy soils, and community building. She has founded and run both for-profit and non-profit entities, including Green Village Initiative (GVI) and Wiggle Room LLC.
Join us to learn how to grow your own healthy food using the latest regenerative agriculture techniques. We’ll talk about design ideas, companion planting, cover crops, seasonal favorites and the importance of healthy soil. You’ll get all the tools you need to have a successful food growing season.
