May 14th Youth in Gardens event at the New School

6 May

This event looks promising, and is being held on Saturday, May 14th at the New School from 9:30am – 4:00pm on 66 West 12th St.

“The New York City Community Garden Coalition (NYCCGC) will present its 2011 Community Gardeners Forum. This year’s event will be youth-driven, focusing on the talent and potential being displayed by youth in gardens and greening programs across New York City. This free event will feature interactive workshops, lively discussions, and live entertainment.

Our keynote speaker this year is Owen Taylor of Just Food. Owen has worked and supported both adults and youth extensively in programming and training; Just Food works to increase access to fresh, healthy, locally-grown food in NYC and to support the family farms and urban gardens that grow it. Owen will be joined onstage by Jazzmin Lyttle-Hylton, Miss Teen Earth Westchester, as they welcome representatives from several stand-out youth programs for a panel discussion.”

The event is free, with a $5 suggested donation.  Reserve your space here.
