Dig Ohio At We Dig Ohio

It’s no secret that agriculture plays a large part in our daily lives. Do you know what’s happening in the field of urban agriculture and community gardening? Check out this educational and enjoyable event!

We Dig Ohio, an annual one-day summit exploring urban agriculture and community gardening in the Ohio region, is happening this Saturday Mar 24 from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Franklin Park Conservatory (1777 E Broad Street Columbus).

We Dig Ohio will give you an opportunity to expand your gardening expertise through panels of experts, educational sessions and hands-on workshops. This year’s We Dig Ohio Summit will have a strong emphasis on young gardeners, with the keynote presentation delivered by a panel of four accomplished young agriculturists ages 10-21.

Continuing the young gardeners theme, lunch will be prepared and served by the local youth gardening and culinary program, OSU Urban GEMS. The event also includes a sneak peek of the newly constructed Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation Children’s Garden (opening to the public May 2018).

The cost for this amazing event is $60 or $45 with a valid student ID. You can register online at https://www.fpconservatory.org/events/we-dig-ohio-urban-agriculture-community-garden-summit/.
