On Saturday April 17th, Advocates for Health in Action will present Dig In!, a local summit on Community Gardens. The event will be a great opportunity to learn how to build, maintain, and sustain a community garden. Dig In! will be held at Marbles Museum from 9:00am to 12:30pm. The event, which is free and open to the public, will feature workshops, presentations from community garden experts, educational booths and a guide to working community gardens throughout Wake County.
I am very excited about this event, and believe that there are endless benefits to community gardens. Community gardens provide easy access to healthy, locally grown foods while promoting community involvement and a healthy lifestyle. There are several community gardens throughout Raleigh, and it would be great to see this number continue to grow!
Dig In! promises to be lots of fun and very informative! Planet Earth Celebration will also be going on at the Museum of Natural Sciences on Saturday April 17th. I hope to see you there!
