Urban Farming Workshop

Greetings everyone!

Come learn about how to grow your own food, participate in a community garden and get more involved in the movement to eat local. Hear about local food security and nutrition issues in DC and how community-based food systems is an important vehicle for addressing those issues.

Our speakers will be:

Anita Adalja, an urban grower and educator at Common Good City Farms which is an urban farm and community education center here in DC. http://commongoodcityfarm.org/

Meredith Shepard, founder of Love and Carrots which is an organic gardening and landscaping company in the District. http://www.loveandcarrots.com/ Meredith will be joined by David Morris who is the Assistant Manager of Love and Carrots.

We look forward to seeing you there and having a great discussion about how each us can personally get involved in local, neighborhood-level food production and also help correct larger food justice issues in our city.
