Glades Community Garden is a project started by a group of families in a low-income housing community in Berea who were looking to be more self-sustaining and to create economic opportunity. The garden has expanded in the year since its inception to include CSA, sales to the Grow Appalachia Summer Feeding Project, and educational opportunities for kids. We are so excited to have the opportunity to contribute to the long-term goals and visions of this amazing community garden! This will be day one of a three day series, each day focusing on different projects at the garden site, intended to be both experiential and educational!
Activities will include but are not limited to: – YOGA @ 9am – BUILDING A COMPOST AREA - EDUCATIONAL PROJECTS FOR KIDS - VERMICULTURE BINS – CLEARING FOREST FOR A MUSHROOM GARDEN – FOOD FOREST DESIGN BASICS – WOOD CHIP MUSHROOM INOCULATION – MAGICAL KIDS FAIRY VILLAGE IN WOODS – PLANTING POLLINATOR GARDEN – BUG HOTEL BUILD - SKILLSHARES, WORKSHOPS AND LIVE MUSIC THROUGHOUT THE DAY

FOOD: If you can, please bring a dish to share. This is a community event and food will be provided by the people for the people in the form of a rolling potluck. Please bring your own dish and eating utensils so we can a) avoid having tons of dishes to do afterwards and b) avoid contributing unnecessarily to the waste stream! Please bring a water bottle to stay hydrated throughout the day.
MUSIC: There will be local musicians playing throughout the day. If you would like to contribute music, poetry, spoken word or art, please contact organizers.
