Community Garden Leadership Training: How to Start and Sustain a Community Garden

A community garden is a place for growing food, friends, flowers and community. Find out how to contribute to the economic, social, and environmental vitality of your neighborhood by starting a community garden. In this workshop, we will cover:
– How to Secure Land
– Finding Funding & Resources
– Organizing Friends & Neighbors to Create a
Community Space
We will also take a tour of an established community garden.

There is a high interest in community gardening in Austin, and very limited spaces available at the current community gardens. Come learn about how we can work together to start more gardens!

Registration required. Cost $5 per participant to cover food and printing of materials. Contact Jess Guffey to reserve your space: call 236-0074 x105 or email jess@sustainablefoodcenter.org.
