Dear Gardener,  

Green Spaces Alliance will be hosting several WORK(ING)SHOPS throughout 2011. WORK(ING)SHOPS are much more than your average listen-and-learn presentation. At these workshops, participants will have opportunities to practice the techniques.

All will be held at local community gardens. Green Spaces has invited experts, community members, and volunteers to share theory and then apply these regionally-appropriate gardening techniques.
