Have you always wanted to grow your own food but felt overwhelmed by where to start? Do you feel you don't have enough space or time for a garden? At this meetup, Linna Ferguson will lead a discussion about the basic principles of growing your own food. Apartment-dwellers fear not! The focus will be on creative approaches to raising food in small spaces.
Linna Ferguson is an avid food gardener who believes that anyone can grow healthy food. Her passion is to teach creative gardening techniques that help maximize your space and time. She has been featured on the "Emeril Green" show with Chef Emeril Lagasse and has spoken at corporate Earth Day
events. A strong supporter of local food producers, she initiated Loudoun Locavores, a community that connects people to local food sources. Her most recent project is http://123foodgardeni..., a blog whose aim is to break gardening into simple steps that anyone can follow.
After the discussion, let's head to Vapiano's for some REAL FOOD! Within walking distance, Vapiano's makes its pasta and pizza sauces to order from fresh ingredients. The restaurant is located at:
4401 Wilson Boulevard
Arlington, Virginia 22203
