Purpose: We want to activate your gardening brain!
In this full day of training, you will learn more about many subjects that surround the Gardening Environment; how to understand and learn from it, engage and apply your knowledge to move towards experiencing success, even if you have never gardened before.
At the end of the day, we will move from the classroom, to the Community Garden and Agroforest Area, and we will look at a few gardening methods and ways to grow food.
Our goal is to equip you, so you can take action with more confidence!
Connecting with the Land brings us closer to our roots through understanding and cooperation.
To prepare grounds for harvest, because what we do now reflects on the future generations, is a necessary activity that connects us, nature and abundance! It’s a promise for us, where knowing how to grow your own food is key for the days ahead. One step at a time, but consistently moving forward.
