Community gardens are vibrant shared spaces for growing fresh food, learning, and building friendships. This 2-night training is relevant for anyone wanting to start or strengthen a community garden. Each night will cover different topics, so please plan to attend both nights. We will cover leadership skills for: organizing a strong garden team, planning the garden, accessing land and water, garden management, finding resources, school-specific strategies and guidelines, and more. You’ll hear from a community garden leader about his/her experiences, and you'll have a chance to meet Meredith Gauthier, Coordinator of the City of Austin's Community Garden Program.

If you are interested in creating a school garden, this training is also for you. The content of this training is similar to that of the School Garden Leadership Training.
