Spring Grow It! Garden workshops May 12

The Vermont Community Garden Network (VCGN) presents the 2014 Spring Grow It! Workshops for community and school garden leaders in partnership with Charlie Nardozzi. The Grow It! Workshops provide garden leaders with timely training and networking opportunities at seven regional locations around the state. The Winooski workshop is presented in partnership with local and regional groups, the City of Winooski, and Burlington Area Community Gardens.

This will be the second year VCGN tours the state to bring people, ideas, and resources together around community and school garden leadership. The spring workshops will look at how to promote commitment and engagement in your garden. Participants will learn more about strategies to boost their garden programs, share ideas and problem-solve together, as well as spend some time at a school garden learning about their program and gaining garden tips for the season.

The spring workshop in Winooski is Monday, May 12, from 4-7pm, including a light dinner.  The workshop will take place at O’Brien Community Center at 32 Malletts Bay Avenue, Winooski.

The Grow It! Workshops are designed for community and school garden leaders and are open to anyone working with a community or school garden. The cost is $30 each, with a sliding scale based on ability to pay the full fee. Please pre-register; information is available at www.vcgn.org or by calling 861-4769.
