Re: Statewide community garden meeting -- February 4

The Vermont Community Garden Network (VCGN) will hold a statewide organizational meeting and conference on Saturday, February 4, 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Gardener's Supply Company, 128 Intervale Road in Burlington.

The meeting will be facilitated by Jim Flint, executive director of Friends of Burlington Gardens, and Joseph Kiefer, founder and co-director of Food Works. Betsy Johnson, executive director of the American Community Gardening Association, will welcome conference participants.

The February 4th event brings together community gardeners from across Vermont for their first statewide gathering. Workshop sessions, presentations, and panel discussions will highlight the role community gardens and school gardens play in cultivating sustainable communities.

Participants will learn from the experiences of veteran garden organizers and interact with exhibitors including Food Works, 4-H Growing Connections, Friends of Burlington Gardens, Shelburne Farms, Burlington Area Community Gardens, Vital Communities, NOFA, National Gardening Association, Healthy City Youth Farm, Rural Vermont, Vermont Campaign to End Childhood Hunger, Vermont Community Works, National Wildlife Federation, UVM Extension Master Gardeners, and the American Community Gardening Association.

The conference is designed for Vermonters interested in learning how to start and sustain a community-based garden project. Refreshments and a complimentary vegetarian lunch will be provided.

Registration is free, with a deadline of January 31. For more information and to download a registration form, please click on the following link:
