‘Community Gardens in Brown County’ will be topic April 21
They’re healthful and relatively cost-efficient. Learn more at a panel discussion on “Community Gardens in Brown County: Past, Present, and Future Generations” on Wednesday, April 21, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Brown County Central Library auditorium in downtown Green Bay.
The panelists will include Karen Early from UW Brown County Extension, Jeff Metoxen from Tsyunhehkwa and the Oneida Community Integrated Food System, Yia Thao from NWTC, and Kay Huxford, a teacher at West High School. They will talk about why they got involved in community gardens, how gardens connect people across generations, and what young people are learning from school projects on community gardens. This event is in support of the One Book, One Community reading selection of Seedfolks — a young adult novel about the creation of a community garden in a low-income Cleveland neighborhood. The April 21 event is organized by the Center for Food in Community and Culture at UW-Green Bay.
