Presentation to Antioch’s Board of Trustees

Last week, for the first time ever, CGC gave an epic presentation to the board or trustees. Former CGC master and Antioch alum, Libby Weiland came to town to join in on the fun. We want to thank Libby for being such a powerful presence during the presentation. Without her, CGC would not be what it is today!

In our discussion we highlighted the many benefits of garden-based education, including community food security, increased quality of life, economic and social wellbeing, as well as building community resilience. Also in the presentation we got to brag about our successes to date. Along with the invaluable services provided to Antioch students, we’ve built 6 garden sites, hosted a myriad of workshops, forums and connected a new community of gardeners to resources in Keene, many of which are children!

Also at this event, CGC unveiled our new promotional video! Thank you to all the people who helped to create this wonderful piece of art! Please check it out and give it a “Like!”

We are really excited to host this year’s first workshop on site design and garden bed planning on March 19th. Stay tuned to hear all about it!
