Transition Berkeley is delighted to present a panel of local gardening all-stars who are transforming our community with their commitment to empowering people to grow and share more food in the city.
Meet panelists Daniel Miller of Spiral Gardens Food Security Project; Victory Lee of Victory Garden Foundation; Rivka Mason, garden teacher at Malcolm X Elementary School; Gavin Rader from Planting Justice; and a representative from Phat Beets Produce.
Learn about a variety of local resources and ways to grow food in urban spaces, patios, curb strips, roof tops, school gardens, urban farms and shared land. How can we make our gardens more productive? How can we organize to share yards and start community gardens? How can we use less water and create less waste while we're increasing our yields? We'll answer these questions and more.
As part of the 2012 Transition Challenge, the evening will end with a give away of heirloom vegetable seeds along with herb and flower seeds courtesy of Victory Garden Foundation and concrete plans of action for participants.
Cost: Free. Donations gratefully accepted to support the community work of Transition Berkeley.
