Free and open to all, The Gardener’s Gathering brings together over 400 gardeners to kick off Boston’s gardening season. As the city’s largest educational forum for urban gardeners, the Gardeners’ Gathering is an opportunity for people to share ideas and tips, network, and learn. Check out the full event program here:  http://bit.ly/2kuifwx

The Gardeners’ Gathering offers more than two dozen skill-building workshops for both vegetable and ornamental gardeners with an emphasis on healthy practices for urban gardens. Topics range from seed starting, composting, fermentation, and urban beekeeping to community and youth organizing. Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn about Boston-area agriculture, gardening, and environmental organizations through the information gallery.

The event will feature special guest speaker LaDonna Redmond, a food justice activist and visionary who has been instrumental in improving food access for residents of both Chicago and communities across the nation. Redmond founded the Campaign for Food Justice Now, which draws attention to the relationship between the food movement and broader social issues including race, gender, and class. She has been recognized by Time Magazine, as well as many national organizations working to transform the food system. Redmond will address “Food and Justice–feeding ourselves in uncertain times” during the noon plenary and will participate in a roundtable discussion during the workshop sessions about food justice as a movement toward liberation, and ending oppression in our food system and beyond.

The event will also feature the popular Annual Community Garden Awards presentations. Individuals, garden groups, and non-profit organizations will be honored with the “Hall of Fame,” “Rookie Gardener of the Year,” and “Most Valuable Gardener” awards. For a complete menu of activities and workshop topics and more information, contact Michelle de Lima at mdelima@thetrustees.org or 617.542.7696 x2115.
