BBG's Making Brooklyn Bloom

I got an email today about an event next Saturday, March 10th, that I am definitely excited about. Brooklyn Botanical Garden is hosting it's 31st Annual Making Brooklyn Bloom.  It's a Free all day conference that is focusing on sustainable growing innovation.  From their website,  the "event features exhibits and workshops on the cutting edge of sustainable urban gardening—from growing food on roofs and windowsills to reducing your garden’s carbon footprint."  I looked at the day's schedule of workshops and the ones I am most excited about attending are

Lasagna Gardening - The Lazy Composter’s Friend
The Farmer on the Sill: High Yields at Window
Testing Soil for Toxins: Now What?

A FREE event all about sustainable urban gardening????  Hell yeah! Sign me up!

  1. Oh, I'll see you there, Mimi - this has been on my calendar for a while! Not yet sure which workshops I'll take, but I'll be there all day! It will be great to see you!

  2. Curious about whether you got to take Marilyn's lasagna workshop or not. She is fantastic. (took her workshop at Floyd Bennett where she gardens and teaches and loved it.)


We love to hear from you. Thanks for leaving a comment!
