In addition there will be 18 workshops, including three by youth gardeners. Other topics include Backyard Bee Keeping, Community Garden Design, a roundtable on starting community gardens and Vegetable Gardening 101.
Community gardens are springing up all over Connecticut. This conference is a great way to connect with and learn from others involved in this important movement.
