Gardening Tips: Producing a Grocery in your Backyard
The Conservatory’s Learn it at Lunch Series is going virtual for fall, focusing on how private and community gardening can have a lasting impact on your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. No gardening experience is required.
The first part of the program will focus on food rescue -- the act of leveraging food that would otherwise be thrown away to feed those in-need. You'll hear from a group of high school students that are bringing food rescue to southwest Ohio to provide every food group to the food insecure. The program concludes with the benefits of fresh, locally grown produce vs. grocery produce, some that may not be as widely known or considered by consumers when shopping. The presentation emphasizes that there is no single method of gardening and that it is an ever-learning experience.
Presenters: Levi Grimm, Butler County coordinator, JEE Foods and Alfred Hall, advisor to the Hamilton Urban Garden System Foundation board and an urban farmer and local food-system advocate.
The Series is free and open to the public. Stream at https://miamioh.webex.com/miamioh/onstage/g.php?MTID=e07d60f6fea4da461bf4160677b59c5e2. Passcode is Miami1968
