Show Notes

A short clip to supplement the full CPHP March Garden Education podcast with co-host, soil scientist Dr. Akilah Martin and guest gardener extraordinaire, Karen Edmond. Karen is a landscape and fruit and vegetable gardener here on the south side of Chicago.

Please share any tips and information with us that we can pass on to gardeners and farmers in Chicago and elsewhere.  Our focus is fabric grow bag vegetable gardening but we support safe gardening of all forms. We are also working to support and expand backyard and community gardeners throughout Chicago as a means of increasing food access and security and as a pathway to improving the health conditions that are manifested in health disparities and the social determinants of health. 

Join us in building healthy communities through gardening, regenerative urban and rural farming, and food literacy programs as well as through building a resilient and healthy food system for all communities...
