Event description

Description

Logistics:

This workshop will take place at St. George's Episcopal Church in LeDroit Park. St. George's is wheelchair accessible by an elevator on the street level. Please let Sam know if you will be using the elevator, and we will make sure that someone is there to show you where it is. There is limited 2-hour street parking available, so we encourage folks to take the metro. It's about a 10 minute walk from the Shaw metro stop. There are also many bus lines that come even closer. There is no specific bike parking, but there are plenty of street signs to lock a bike to.

Lunch is not provided, but there is a kitchen where we can refrigerate lunches, and a microwave to warm them up. There are also several local restaurants/cafes that are walkable for lunch. Common Good City Farm will provide tea and water to participants.

SCHOLARSHIPS: there are 4 scholarships available for this workshop. If you are interested in a scholarship, please send an email to sam@commongoodcityfarm.org by August 15th, 2018. Please include your name, organization, and whether or not you are able to cover any of the costs (we may do partial scholarships to assist more folks in attending).
