OMK Garden Work Day & Food Security Discussion
Saturday, July 26, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join us in the OMK Garden!
Join us as we tend to the garden and talk about how we can help feed our state! The first half of the morning will be spent working in the garden, which could be watering, weeding, staking veggies, harvesting- it’ll depend on the week and the state of the garden. The second half of the morning will be spent talking about food security in Vermont and what we can do to help decrease hunger in Vermont through gardening.
Date: Saturday, July 26th
Where: Family Readiness Center, Camp Johnson
Who: This garden is for all military children and youth (and even parents if you'd like to join us!). That said, children under the age of 7 are invited to participate, but we do ask that parents of children 6 and under stay with us.
Looking for more garden opportunities this summer? We've got plenty!
Join Alyson in the garden on most Tuesday afternoons between 3 and 5:30pm to check on the garden's progress, watering, and weeding!
We also have a number of other Saturday gardening events lined up. Check out our Eventbrite page to sign up for more!
