The Climate Awareness Garden project is a hands-on environmental education effort designed to raise awareness and understanding of the connection between food and climate through development and maintenance of a square foot garden. The key themes of the project are the positive impact eating locally, eating a plant-based diet, and wasting less food can have on our climate by reducing pollution. Please join us for any or all of our workshops, and sign up here.
