Join GenPhilly for an afternoon pizza and conversation to bring together professionals who foster community gardens and those who work with older adults.  

Community gardens nearby or at senior centers and housing facilities can provide elders with the opportunity to grow their own food, exercise, share their knowledge, and express creativity.  Come hear panelists who will discuss current projects and opportunities, and then participate in breakout sessions designed to connect you to resources in your own neighborhood.
