3rd Annual Community Garden Conference.
In the past 5 years, interest in and demand for community gardens has exploded. With over 30 years of community garden experience, a strong commitment to education, and our treasured partnership with Rutgers Cooperative Extension, The Frelinghuysen Arboretum is the perfect venue for a conference focusing on community gardens. Whether you’re an experienced or new community gardener, a community garden Manager or Coordinator, or an activist trying to get a community garden started, you will want to attend this program.
The impressive list of speakers, all experts in their fields, will be covering topics like: Growing Small Fruits; Bee- keeping; Organic Control of Common Vegetable Insects; Best Management Practices for Garden Managers; and Seed Saving. We are thrilled that our Keynote Speaker this year is the distinguished Joan Dye Gussow, author and Professor Emeritus at Columbia University, and whom the New York Times has called the “matriarch of the local food movement.” More details may be found in the brochure (click on image). Lunch is provided.
