Time: GROW workshops are normally scheduled from 9 AM to 3 PM, and usually held on a Saturday.
Location: In four locations across North Carolina, partner communities will be announced in early 2017
Community gardens are sprouting up everywhere in North Carolina, bringing fresh vegetables, healthy exercise, a greener environment, friendships, and fun to neighborhoods across our state. North Carolina residents interested in this growing movement can attend a GROW community gardening workshop in 2017 at locations across North Carolina.
GROW workshops are now in their third series. The first of the current series, in Columbus, North Carolina in October 2016, received rave reviews. Four more are slated for sites across North Carolina in early 2017. Watch our website for more information.
GROW workshops are lead by experienced community garden leaders. Topics include season extension techniques, environmentally friendly gardening, ensuring sustainable garden success, and strengthening neighborhoods through community gardening. GROW encourages community gardeners to network and serve as local resources.
GROW workshops are open to the entire community. In particular, community and school gardeners, volunteers, organizers, and local food advocates, new and experienced alike, find GROW workshops are an invaluable source of practical, experience-tested ideas.
The workshop is part of the GROW (Gardeners Recreating Our World) initiative, organized by NCCGP (North Carolina Community Garden Partners), a statewide non-profit community gardening network. Burt’s Bees Greater Good Foundation, and Resourceful Communities, a program of The Conservation Fund and Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, provide funding and support.
NCCGP is dedicated to expanding community gardening opportunities throughout our state. We promote and advocate for community gardens, connect partners, provide education, and share resources. Join us!
