2014 Pre-Season Garden Kick Off Workshop

On Tuesday, March 4th Keene Community Garden Connections hosted a workshop at Antioch University. Gardeners, site partners, coordinators and faculty advisors got together to share gardening knowledge. The day was an inspiration and the most important lesson learned was how much collective garden knowledge we hold together.
