Upcoming events of interest to food gardeners

Here are three events happening in the month of February in Montgomery County and the District of Columbia.  If you know of other food gardening-related events in Maryland or close by, please leave links in the comments.

February 19: RootingDC, a FREE Urban Gardening Forum to educate and build community among gardeners.

February 25: Green Matters Symposium, Real Food Renaissance.  This year the annual Brookside Gardens event will focus on the growing number of local, regional and national grassroots efforts to encourage Americans to eat “Real Food.” From public gardens to local government and nonprofit groups advancing change in our local food systems to high profile chefs committed to changing the way we eat and think about where our food comes from, we’re experiencing a culinary renaissance.  Register by today, January 31, for a discounted fee of $79.  $89 thereafter.  Edit: early registration deadline now extended to Feb. 7.

February 26: Random Acts of Gardening, Montgomery County Master Gardeners Mini-Conference.  This day-long educational program includes several classes on food gardening topics as well as on community gardens, seed-starting, landscaping, etc.  Cost: $50.
