Urban Ag Field Day
November 2, 2017 | 9:30-11:30am
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!
