Description

Please join us for a delightful afternoon in Daniel's garden for a edible gardening workshop entitled - Healthy Soil, Healthy Food, Healthy People: Growing Food for Friends and Family! Hosted By Deep Roots Project and Daniel Price owner of KaliKale.

Since 2015, Oak Parker Daniel Price has shared his love for gardening with his community by hosting free workshops. In partnering with Deep Roots, he’s empowered others to find success in their gardens by modeling simple techniques for the urban grower.

His approach is really quite simple: start by building healthy soils using locally available materials you can find around your home and neighborhood. Be creative: abandon row croppings and chemical fertilizers. Plant countless diverse types of plants, including natives, to encourage biodiversity. Provide your family with a variety of delicious organic produce. Give your young ones a chance to interact with nature, build self-sufficiency and the love and joy that comes with growing your own food.

Daniel’s gardens have been featured in the Sugarbeet Food Coop’s Annual Garden Walk for the past two years. He won an Oak Park Green Award in 2016 for his work with School Gardens in Oak Park. He was a keynote speaker at District 97’s 1st annual School Garden symposium. And his startup, KaliKale, along with Deep Roots, was a finalist in the Oak Park Big Idea Contest in 2017.

This May, Daniel will be hosting another Free Workshop at his home garden. This workshop is intended for both beginners and intermediate gardeners. Participants will learn how to start and transplant seedlings, how to plant successive crops at the correct time for our climate, and most importantly, principles of sustainability and permaculture that will save you water, time, and money all the while boosting biodiversity and helping rehabilitate green spaces in our urban environment.
