- Virtual Veganic Garden Tour
In the year following the founding of FMVeg, the First Annual FMVeg Garden Tour took place. For almost a decade, every summer three different veganic gardens were featured on the tour, followed by a potluck. This was trimmed down to a one-stop garden tour and food-and-games party for the last few years. So what to do now, with COVID? A virtual garden tour! This one-hour live streaming event will feature the garden of Forest Gray. This spontaneous tour will evolve from the cell-phone filming and interview magic of Kathleen Keene (FMVeg's primary organizer) and questions by viewers in the video streaming thread. Forest Gray is a backyard gardener who resides in Fargo. She is passionate about heirloom and indigenous plants. She is a seed-saving educator trained through the Seed Savers Exchange (Iowa) and is North Dakota's only listed member of the Seed Savers Exchange's international seed saving network. Forest Gray utilizes a variety of composting strategies, uses organic and cruelty-free gardening practices, and protects and develops pollinator habitats throughout her property. Her garden includes vegetables, herbs, fruits, and flowers. Everyone who RSVPs and stays for the whole event, will be entered to win a door prize from Field Roast, including a branded t-shirt, apron, and a pilsner glass!
