The arrival of fall doesn’t mean that garden season is over. In fact, the People’s Garden Initiative wants to keep the conversation growing! Throughout the growing season, People’s Garden staff and Executive Master Gardener volunteers at USDA Headquarters are asked hundreds of questions on the why, how, when and what of gardening. You too may be digging for answers on ways to turn your thumb a healthier shade of green.
You may have some of the same questions like:
How do I start a People’s Garden?
Where do I go for local gardening advice?
What should I plant with my students or children?
If you’re interested in getting answers to your community or school garden questions then join us on Wednesday, October 24 at 2 p.m. EDT for a live twitter chat with Annie Ceccarini, Outreach and Education Specialist for the People’s Garden Initiative. During the live Twitter chat, Annie will answer YOUR questions related to the Department’s gardening program and general gardening questions.
You can send your questions on gardening in advance to the @USDA Twitter account using hashtags #AskUSDA and #PeoplesGarden
People’s Gardens have expanded to all 50 states, three U.S. territories and twelve foreign countries. They are located at faith-based centers, on federal leased or owned property, at schools and other places within the community. Search the People’s Gardens Interactive Map to find out where our gardens are located.
See you Wednesday!
