Have you been thinking about starting a vegetable or flower garden? Are you an experienced gardener interested in connecting with others who share your interest? Maybe you are just looking for a way to add local, farm-fresh foods to your diet.
Join us for the March forum for a lively and engaging conversation about how gardening and local foods can pay dividends in your life—both for your health and your bottom line.
Gardening offers many important benefits, including opportunities to:
- Produce low-cost food and flowers
- Get exercise and vitamin D
- Relieve stress
- Socialize with neighbors
- Improve the beauty and health of the environment
Walk away from this forum with concrete action steps for making new connections with other gardeners and Mother Nature.
Attendees can win a Bachman's plant in VAN's first-ever raffle!
