Capital Gains Speaker Series Sign Up: Urban Gardening and Farming
The Capital region has an abundance of urban gardens. Backyard gardens (think greens and chickens) are also gaining in popularity. Plans are also being developed to create an urban farm in the flood plain on Lansing’s Eastside.
Nailing down the Capital region’s urban farming and gardening experts is
a bit of a challenge in April when they’re giving workshops and
prepping for a green, nutritious summer.
But this is a great time of year to talk about urban farming and urban gardening.
What does it mean? How is it evolving? What impact will it have on the region and the health of area residents?
