Hello Michigan school and community gardeners!
2011 Community School Gardener Networking Meeting NOV.5th is just a week and 1/2 away!
Location: Wayne County Community College Eastern Campus in Detroit! (5901 Conner Street, Detroit, MI)
Here is a sneak peak at some of the sessions planned: Land Use, Planning and Land Banking, Serving School Garden Grown Food in the Cafeteria, Horticulture Vocational Training for Young Adults with Disabilities, the Farm Bill and Why it Matters, Classroom-based Hands-on Gardening, the WISE Woman Gardeners
OPEN SPACE: Open Space offers an opportunity for participants to spark discussions and network around shared interests. You initiate a topic or join one of most interest to you.
YOUTH TRACK!: Youth ages 10-17, 9:30-4:00, The day is looking to be FULL of creativity, expression, and …of course, FUN. As part of the youth track we will learn to shoot video, create questions and conduct an interview. We will apply skills to collect footage for a "message video" about school and community gardening. We will also learn about marketing produce, youth/adult stereotypes and positive youth/adult partnerships, team work and communication.
Hope to see you there!
