By Doug Cook, NOFA/Mass Educational Events Coordinator
Gardening is a great way to grow our own healthy food. For many of us, this is the first reason we start a garden, but the practice of gardening is also much more than that. Through gardening, we deepen our connection to our environment; it becomes a creative outlet and we can tap into a deep cultural lineage of collaborating with plants. NOFA/Mass is excited to offer the Resilient Garden Series, a FREE educational series to anyone who wants to start a garden or is looking to deepen their gardening knowledge.
Starting on February 16th, 2021, every Tuesday evening from 7:00pm – 8:30pm through April 13th, we will be hosting a garden–related online event with live presentations and Q&A periods. Each event will focus on specific areas of gardening knowledge. You’re welcome to join them in succession, or choose to jump in only for your favorite topics.
