Happy Monday! Thank you to everybody who came out to the Kick-Off Semester Social! It was so great to see some new faces!
Even if you weren’t able to make it SOGA holds opens hours every Sunday from 10 am to 2 pm. This is perfect time to come on down to the garden and help out or learn more about us.
This semester in SOGA we are hosting the ‘Food Justice Through Urban Gardening’ Decal. It has been redesigned from the previous spring decal called ‘Intro to Organic Gardening and Food Justice.’
This class will introduce both new and experienced gardeners to the basic theories and methods of urban agriculture, while exploring the ways that social injustice and inequality determine everything from our access to food to our relationship with the non-human world to environmental health. In our class, we hope to inspire students to engage with these social issues, hopefully through growing food, horticulture, compost, design, and many more.
So far the classes are off to a great start!
We are so happy to start up the semester again and get it kicking with some workshops and socials! Veterans, newbies, students, and community members are all equally welcomed!
