The Growing More than Veggies series is back! Last year, this series covered all things community gardening related, and we are offering four more sessions starting in February. If you haven’t participated in this series yet, see below for details.

Alongside fresh produce, community and school gardens grow deep relationships and community engagement, provide space for physical and mental wellness, and support life-long learning and academic success. This series will focus on aspects of community development highlighted through gardening. All programs will be held virtually from 6–7 p.m.

The Growing More than Veggies series focuses on resources and experiences for community and school gardeners in the Piedmont, but is open for anyone to attend! Each session will include both a presentation and time dedicated to questions, discussion, and dialogue. This is a free program, but registration is required. Registration is available on the Eventbrite pages for each session. Please see the information below for more details about each session.

Accessible garden design

February 15th: Accessible Garden Design & ADA Compliant Spaces

From increasing access to healthy foods to improving mental wellbeing, gardening has many benefits. We want as many people as possible to experience the benefits of gardening, and therefore must ensure that our community gardens are accessible to everyone. This Growing More than Veggies session will cover ADA standards for accessible gardens, and demonstrate two accessible gardens and outdoor spaces in Winston-Salem. We will cover essential areas of consideration when designing a garden, and some gardening activities for folks across the spectrum physical and mental ability. Speakers will include Andy Larowe from the Gateway Nature Preserve and JoAnn Yates, Horticultural Therapist at the Children’s Center.
