Planting Seeds of Hope: Gardening for Justice and Food Security
February 3, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Justice Gardeners, a new organization in St. Louis, is offering “Planting Seeds of Hope: Gardening for Justice and Food Security,” a virtual session introducing communal gardening as a way to grow food for local pantries. Participants can choose to attend either Wednesday, February 3 from 7-9PM (Central) or Sunday, February 7 from 2-4PM (Central) on Zoom. The workshops are free but pre-registration is required to receive the Zoom link. Please register at www.JusticeGardeners.org.
“Gardening is something anyone can do by themselves, but something miraculous happens when people come together to feed themselves and their neighbors,” says Karen Flotte, Executive Director. “Every small act, done in solidarity, makes a huge difference. Growing food together awakens our souls to new possibilities of being the change we want to see in our communities.”
The Planting Seeds of Hope Workshop will:
- Teach how you can provide urgently needed fresh, organic produce to those most vulnerable in our community this year,
- Outline the requirements and steps to create a communal justice garden,
- Explore how creating a food justice garden is a powerful learning lab, source of beauty and healing space which builds communities of mutual support while pursuing justice at the most local level.
