Join us at the Growing Communities Conference
Making a successful community garden requires building physical infrastructure (such as raised beds, water systems, & compost bins), but it also requires building the human infrastructure — the community that will keep the garden growing for years to come. Representatives from the American Community Garden Association will be coming to San Diego to facilitate a great 2-day Conference that will focus on how to build the “community” within our community gardens. You can apply to be an attendee or volunteer for the Conference by clicking here.
We are also accepting sponsorship for conference attendees, monetary donations, and food donations to make this a successful event for all of SD County.
See below for details about the Conference, or by clicking here to see the pdf.
Listen in with us to this Urban Agriculture Webinar this Friday!
Urban Agriculture: Economics, Successes and Challenges: Research, Outreach and Education Implications for the Northeast
This webinar will help:
- Provide an overview of the general issues of the economics of urban agriculture and ‘suburbanizing’ the city, and look at urban farming in practice in Baltimore – discussing some key challenges that urban farmers face and opportunities/resources to overcome those challenges;
- identify current efforts in research, teaching and extension that promote practical and profitable responses to urban agriculture challenges; and
- identify ‘ways forward’ to improve climate change research, teaching and extension collaborations across the region in an effort to help build stronger networks among land grant and related institutions in the Northeast.
This webinar is designed for research, teaching and extension professionals and practitioners engaged in work related to the Northeast regional food system.
For questions or more information, please contact Dr. Dee Singh-Knights, Assistant Professor, West Virginia University at 304-293-7606 or email@example.com.
Thanks to the Voice of San Diego’s 2013 Politifest, we have been able to help get the Mosaic Community Garden of Chula Vista started and teach a Eco-Technology and Urban Agriculture class in the garden!
"The garden is itself a living demonstration of practical means of diversifying our food supply, one that is open to the public to visit and learn from,” course facilitator Rosero Lecusay said. “Through the integration of our course with daily garden activities, garden memubers have gained experience in becoming digitally empowered spokespeople for the value of their garden.”
Join us at the grand opening of a new community garden in Carlsbad! The Calavera Schoolhouse Community Garden will be hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house event on Saturday, June 28, 2014 from 1-4pm. 2997 Glasgow Drive, Carlsbad, CA.
