Plant Providence 2012 Highlights

As 2012 is coming to an end, we would like to share with you some of the highlights from this year’s Plant Providence workshop series. 2012 was an incredible year for both teaching and learning how to grow food. This year’s diverse array of 23 food-growing workshops drew in over 300 community members! From teaching the basics of planning and planting to delving into more specific, advanced topics, such as Cultivating Perennials, Plant Providence 2012 catered to growers of all kinds and levels.

While offering favorites from last year, we also introduced some new topics, including Seed-starting and Fermentation. Additionally we offered several popular workshops, such as Urban Beekeeping and Chicken-keeping, multiple times and provided translation services at others, making our workshops accessible to the diverse communities in Providence.

We’ve already started planning for 2013, and we’re looking forward to more workshops and our community continuing to strengthen around growing food. Here’s to 2012, and let’s also toast to 2013–a year for more learning and teaching how to grow food!

Check out the slideshow below for some snapshots of the workshops and community members learning how to grow food.
