February 5, 2009 at 7:14 am 2 comments

wgvunclesamOn Tuesday, May 5, starting at 5:30pm, I’m hosting Green Zones: From the War Garden to Your Garden, a presentation on Victory Gardens, the Women’s Land Army of America, and how gardeners are growing their own food today. The event takes place at Firehouse 13, 41 Central Street in Providence.

Panelists include: Judy Barrett Litoff, Professor of History at Bryant University; Rich Pederson, City Farm Manager at Southside Community Trust; and Sarah Zurier, creator of Green Zone.

Green Zones: From the War Garden to Your Garden is made possible through major funding support from the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, an independent state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

More details to come this spring.
