Yard Share and Guerilla Gardening: Community Agriculture Practices in JP

Come out on Monday, April 22nd, at 6:30pm and meet your neighbors for the next JP NET potluck.

In honor of Earth Day and Spring, the focus of our potluck is on garden sharing and the creation of community garden spaces through guerilla gardening. Come hear from:

Andr?e Zaleska, coordinator of JP Yard Share, will speak about how she turned her yard at JP Green House into a community garden for four families. Also find out how to either share your yard, or garden in someone else?s yard if your are a frustrated gardener looking for space.

Dan Bensonoff, co-founder of Egleston Community Orchard, and find out about starting the first orchard plot on a 30-year vacant city-owned lot.

Share your own stories of guerilla gardening, starting community green spaces, and celebrate how neighbors are renewing nature in the city. And ? shh ? there might be a seed bomb demonstration, material provided.
