Meet with others to share projects and garden!

Garden Network

The Gardener's Network is a coalition of growers and educators in Tompkins County who are working together to promote and expand land access, gardening and garden-related educational opportunities

Each month the session will be held at a different location in our community to: a) give participants an opportunity to see multiple projects; b) give host sites an opportunity to share projects publicly and to receive feedback; and, c) to provide extra hands for any work the host site may need d) to discuss strategies and tactics that we can use to achieve our goals. If you are interested in hosting a future session at your project or potential garden site, please send a short description of the project, and the name/phone/email of a contact person to Josh Dolan at We are currently looking for hosts for our 2013 series.
