Growing Petersburg Garden Project
535 Beech Street, Petersburg, VA 23803
Urban agriculture helps to alleviate urban food deserts, make our food as “local” and fresh as possible and decrease the “food miles” associated with long-distance transportation. It provides a wide range of community benefits, including closer neighborhood ties, reduced crime, education and job training opportunities, and healthy food access for low-income residents.
Join us for a hands-on field day to talk about fall gardening!
Speakers: Mike Jackson, President, Think, Then Choose Wisely; Dr. Leonard Githinji, Sustainable and Urban Agriculture Extension Specialist; and William Crutchfield, VSU Small Farm Outreach

THIS EDUCATIONAL WORKSHOP IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
