Urban Garden Tour: Creating a Sustainable Urban Garden without a Soil Footprint
The Desert Marigold School is located on a beautiful, 12-acre campus at the foot of South Mountain. Their biodynamic garden, protected nature pond, and resident farm animals give substance to the school's commitment to sustainability as an intrinsic part of their curriculum. Christie Martin, Linda Roessler, and Sara Marie Wall work together on sustaining the Tower Garden Project. They believe teaching future generations more sustainable practices and thinking is the promise to securing our universal food systems.
In this tour, the team from the Desert Marigold School will give a hands-on presentation of their experiences, research findings, and results from their first year of growing produce utilizing the aeroponic tower gardens.
In addition to this tour, there will be a talk on Tuesday, November 14th. Please RSVP separately for the talk talk.
10:00 - 11:15 a.m.
