Redefining Heritage: Garbage to Gardens

May 19 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Tickets Starting at: Free

Essex County has a long history of agriculture, with some of the oldest working farms in the country still operating today. There is also a deep-rooted tradition of individual and community gardening that has seen a rise in interest during the social isolation of the current pandemic. Creating healthy soils and sustainable landscapes not only for large, established farms, but for backyard gardeners is essential, and something that the speakers in this session will focus on. Join Jennifer Core, Director of Agriculture for The Trustees, Andrew Brousseau, Partner and Compost Manager for Black Earth Compost, and Lara Lepionka, Founder and Executive Director of Backyard Growers to learn the history of farming in Essex County, the science of soil, and how those interested in starting their own sustainable garden can begin.
Following the presentation, there will be a moderated Q&A. Live captions are available during this presentation.
