Garden Visit and Tour, Sunday Aug 12 at 3PM
The Brighton Community Garden(For a report on this event, check out the Slow Food Rochester Board Notes blog!)
The Brighton Community Garden is an all-organic community garden tended by community members who grow food for their own use using all organic methods. Started on 2009, the garden consists of 100 plots, which now in August have an abundance of a wide variety of produce and other plants. Come meet with Sue Gardner Smith, the organizer of the garden, and learn about its history and community gardens in general. In addition, some community members will be there to share about their own garden plots, including one that is experimenting with Hugelculture.
Here’s an opportunity to see the many gardens and interact with the gardeners and other Slow Food members about community gardens. The event is free and all are welcome! It starts at 3PM, and will be followed by light refreshments and conversation. Please feel free to bring a dish to pass if you feel inspired!
