Veganic Gardening Workshop

August 26 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

This is the 3rd workshop of our 2018 series. Each workshop can be taken as a stand-alone or as part of the series. We will speak about planning for winter, cover cropping and overwintering crops.

Matt Loisel, long-time veganic gardener and founder of Lazy Millennial Farms, teaches how to start and maintain a healthy garden and grow our own food organically, without using the animal inputs commonly used in organics such as manure, blood or bonemeal. Gardening without synthetic or animal fertilizers is the most resource-efficient, sustainable and compassionate way to go about it and easy to boot.

A $15 donation is suggested; nobody is turned away for lack of funds.

Light vegan snacks are provided. Please bring a water bottle to reduce waste.

Please arrive by 1:50 so that the workshops can start promptly at 2pm.

These workshops take place in a garden with generous plum trees, so expect that the bench you sit on will have some dried plum juice. We suggest you wear clothes that you do not mind getting dirty and/or bring a newspaper to cover your seat.

Gardening in the spaces that are available to us, be it a small plot in a community garden, a rooftop, a balcony or a front yard, is an important step in improving access to healthy foods, beautifying and nurturing our environments, and building community resiliency. Seed the Commons is delighted to support our community by offering gardening workshops three times a year.
