It’s a unique event when free classes are offered in urban gardening, but especially when they’re happening on Southside.
The upcoming Urban Agriculture Learning Series looks like it’s going to be a great series of classes since people like Duron Chavis, of the Noir Market; Lisa Taranto, founder of Tricycle Gardens; and John Lewis, of Renew Richmond look to be involved. These guys know their stuff and are eager to bring awareness of living healthy to areas of Richmond like Southside that get the short end of the stick when it comes to educational opportunities and options for eating healthy (our world for a descent grocery store) The bottom line is, te highly recommend you checking it out whether you’re a novice in the yard or have some experience under the gardening belt.
