Fall Collective Gardening Community of Practice

Our next Zoom meet-up will be on Wednesday, November 9, from 9:00-10:30am.  
Collective gardens are growing spaces where gardeners share the work of planting, tending and harvesting in one large plot together, differentiated from the traditional individually-tended community garden “plots.” These growing communities have their own unique set of opportunities, challenges, and creative solutions. The Collective Gardening Community of Practice welcomes all individuals involved in this work, to share ideas, swap resources, and brainstorm solutions for more robust and resilient collective garden communities.
In preparation for our Fall Zoom Meet Up, we encourage all participants to read the 8-page “Growing Our Gardens, Growing Ourselves: A Curious Gardener’s Guide to Garden Planning, Journeying with Robin Wall Kimmerer”, shared by Fruition Seeds.  The reflection questions shared in the reading have invited us to pause and contemplate why we are gardeningwho we are gardening for, and how gardens grow us just as much as we grow them.  We look forward to expanding on these reflections with all of you in the context of collective gardens as another growing season comes to a close.
