The Growing Connection presented a workshop entitled "The Growing Connection: Cultivating Food and Empowering and Connecting Youth Globally" at Great Kids Farm on Saturday, July 18. This educational farm is owned and operated by Baltimore City Public Schools in Maryland.

"A Day of Free Urban Agriculture & Food Based Workshops" was divided into 3 sessions of hands-on workshops, each session lasting 75 to 90 minutes in length. Workshop topics ranged from choosing a garden to fit your space, building a garden from soil test to harvest, canning and other kitchen tips, introduction to chickens, connecting youth with nature, building an outdoor earthen oven, and more.


The TGC demo garden at River Farm, the headquarters of the American Horticultural Society (AHS) in Alexandria, Virginia has moved to Great Kids Farm, including 20 plus EarthBoxes. Hooray!
