Event Details

Want to grow some of your own food, herbs, flowers or plants, but not sure how to make it happen? Want to understand what urban permaculture is? Come join our hands-on workshop with local expert Gavin Raders from Planting Justice – a local organization that helps urban residents with the skills, resources, and inspiration to maximize food production, economic opportunities, and environmental beauty in our neighborhoods.

Fee: Free and open to the public. A donation of $5-10 is suggested to support Green Cafe Network’s Community Education Series.

The workshop will take place on the back outside patio of cafe Local 123, where we will use containers to learn how to grow mini-gardens on our patios, porches, windowsills in our back yards. Gavin will give a brief talk about urban permaculture, and will demonstrate how you can get started on growing the right plants for your space. Bring a container and seeds if you’d like to start your garden as you learn.

Disclaimer: Please double check event information with the event organizer as events can be canceled, details can change after they are added to our calendar, and errors do occur.
