Two Events Triangle Residents Won't Want to Miss

>> Tuesday, April 6, 2010

This post is for my Triangle readers.

Many of you know that I'm involved with several groups that are working to build up and establish community gardens in the area: the Raleigh Community Gardeners, Triangle Area Homesteaders, and the Advocates for Health in Action.

I'm pleased to tell you that there's a lot going on with community gardens in Raleigh, and specifically, there are two big events coming up that you need to know about.

EVENT #1: Kick-off Event for Alliance Medical Community Garden Featuring Will Allen

  • When: April 6 from 6-8pm
  • Where: Alliance Medical Ministry
  • What: Kick-off the planned community garden at Alliance Medical Ministries and meet Will Allen. Inter-Faith Food Shuttle’s Catering With A Cause will provide food for the reception.
  • Contact: RSVP to or call 919-250-0043
I'm going to be out of town for this event and am so completely bummed. Will Allen is the founder of Growing Power, Inc., and one of my food heroes. We're very lucky to have him come back to Raleigh.

EVENT #2: Dig In!
  • When: April 17 from 9 am -12:30 pm
  • Where: Marbles Children's Museum
  • What: Learn about the benefits of starting a community garden, attend presentations describing how how to start, maintain, and manage a garden, browse booths with info about gardening, and meet fellow Wake County residents interested in gardening.
  • Contact: Register to attend DIG IN here!
I've been involved with planning this event and am super excited about it. It's on the morning of Raleigh's Planet Earth Celebration, so you'll be downtown that day anyway, right? Might as well come learn how to start a garden in your neighborhood.
