Gardening for Resilience:
Feeding our Soil, Seeds, Habitats and Communities 
 
In this challenging year, Vermont needs resilient gardeners more than ever. Resilient gardeners are empowered people who grow food, create beautiful and therapeutic places, and support resilient ecosystems. Resilient gardeners are vital to the web of interdependence that helps sustain the Vermont way of life. Not everyone can be a farmer or an environmental scientist, but anyone can become a resilient gardener!!
 
 
Our wonderful line up of speakers includes;
 
Dan Jaffe Wilderthe Horticulturalist and Propagator for the Norcross Wildlife Sanctuary; Jamaica Kincaid, award-winning writer, novelist, and Harvard professor; Sylvia Davatz, expert seed saver, and founder of Solstice Seeds; and Natasha Duarte (CAV) and Cat Buxton, Vermont soil and compost experts.
 
The $40 fee includes access to both days, as well as live recording of the conference.
 
Partial scholarships are available.
