Garden Leader Workshop Sept 8 In Hardwick

The Vermont Community Garden Network (VCGN) presents the 2014 Fall Grow It! Workshops for community and school garden leaders in partnership with Charlie Nardozzi. The workshops provide garden leaders with timely training and networking opportunities at 7 regional locations around the state. The Hardwick workshop is presented in partnership with Hardwick Elementary School, Green Mountain Farm to School, and Fresh Start Community Farm.

In its second year, VCGN will be touring the state to bring people, ideas and resources together around community and school garden leadership. The fall workshops will take a closer look at what's working in your garden and what you can do this winter to take it to the next level. Participants will learn more about strategies to boost their garden program, share ideas and problem-solve, and gain garden tips for the season. Each workshop is hosted by a local community or school garden.

The fall workshop in Hardwick is Monday, Sept. 8, from 4 to 7 p.m., including a light dinner. The workshop will take place at Hardwick Elementary School at 135 South Main St., Hardwick.

The Grow It! Workshops are designed for community and school garden leaders and open to anyone working with a community-based garden. Registration information is available at or by calling 802-861-4769.

The Grow It! Garden Organizer Training Series and related technical assistance are made possible with generous support from New England Grassroots Environment Fund, Ben & Jerry's Foundation, and Vermont Agency of Agriculture.

The Vermont Community Garden Network helps community and school groups all over Vermont start, sustain, and grow gardens, building strong local food systems and vibrant educational sites. To learn more about VCGN visit
