Join Us Tomorrow at ROOTING DC

We will be at the Rooting DC event at Calvin Coolidge High School in Takoma Park.  This event highlights urban gardening in our local area and is free to attend.  From their website:

DC’s Field to Fork Network announces the 4th annual Rooting DC Forum to be held on February 19th, 2011 at Coolidge High School. The forum, which is free and open to the public, will attract an anticipated audience of 500 community members, who will come together to learn about food production and access in DC.
Keynote speaker will be Gordon Clark, founder of Montgomery Victory Gardens. Other guest speakers include Michael Twitty (historian of African American food and folk culture), and Paul Blundell (owner of Southern Exposure Seed Exchange), who will join local leaders of the local food justice and urban agriculture movement. The day-long program will include interactive workshops, cooking and food preservation demonstrations, an information fair, and panel discussions focusing on school and youth gardening, nutrition, sustainable growing techniques, and healthy food access.
“Concerns about access to healthy food, limiting our environmental impact, and supporting local economies are coming together to create a powerful new interest in growing your own food here in the District,” says event organizer, Bea Trickett of the Neighborhood Farm Initiative.

We will be set up with a few hives, and lots to share with anyone who wants to have a bee adventure.  I look forward to meeting you.
