Contributions benefit the Pesticide Free Neighborhood Project. As many of you know, I’m really proud of the efforts being made in my neighborhood to create connectivity around food systems, local ecology issues and environmental health. This is a great opportunity to check out some examples of how our home landscapes (and a school garden) can help us build community, resilience and deepen our connection with food, the seasons and each other. The juicy details of this tour are too many to mention, but highlights include Bob and Ginger Edward’s Mason Bee demonstration 11 am at Garden No. 2, the Village Building Convergence seed swap at Garden 4 and the wild, lush habitat garden at Garden No. 5. Hope to see you there!
