Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions about some of the challenges and rewards of starting a new GreenThumb garden and strategies for organizing community members. GreenThumb will present the steps to forming a new community garden with today‚Äôs rules and regulations. This workshop will point new gardeners towards resources and tools for finding information and garnering community support to form new gardening groups.”
