A model for reducing waste, sharing resources and knowledge, and building community
Want to grow food for your household but feel overwhelmed by needing to buy all the supplies and acquire all the knowledge by yourself?
Come hear Zuleyja Prieto of Goshen share about a community project called Rooting Through Corn, Planting Families, which supports backyard gardeners in raising, honoring, and sharing heritage corn seed as well as tools, supplies, and knowledge. Learn how a community of growers is reducing wasted time, energy, materials, and knowledge by sharing, and how building relationships with other gardeners can be key to success, sustenance, and sustainability.
In addition to talking backyard corn, Jon Zirkle of Bushelcraft Farm will cover aspects of growing a variety of foods by starting small–at the backyard and patio scale. Attendees will have plenty of time for questions and sharing ideas as well as opportunities to acquire seeds for growing in 2022!

Date: February 24
Time: 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
