School/youth gardening events

Here are some upcoming events of interest to anyone who wants to garden with kids.  These take place at Brookside Gardens in Montgomery County.  (Again, please share events in other counties - my perspective is local but this blog is for the whole state!)

This Saturday, February 12, noon to 4 p.m., please join us for Building Intergenerational Community: Working with Young People in the Garden.  Details are at Montgomery Victory Gardens.  This program features Woody Woodroof, Pertula George, and Chrissa Carlson.  Chrissa is also the star of Grow It Eat It's Start a School Garden video.

Then on Friday, April 29, from 10-11:30 am, edible landscaping guru Rosalind Creasy will be at Brookside for a lecture on Gardening with Children.  She will also talk on Edible Landscaping - The New American Garden the previous evening at 6:30.  Information and registration for both events can be found at Brookside Xperience.

More soon on new vegetable gardening programs in Montgomery County Public Schools!
