Saturday, March 18 | 11AM-4PM
Northeastern University, Shillman Hall
Boston

Free and open to all, The Gardeners' Gathering brings together over 400 gardeners to kick off Boston’s gardening season. As the city’s largest educational forum for urban gardeners, the Gardeners’ Gathering is an opportunity for people to share ideas and tips, network, and learn. The Gardeners’ Gathering offers more than two dozen skill-building workshops for both vegetable and ornamental gardeners with an emphasis on healthy practices for urban gardens. Topics range from seed starting to composting, urban beekeeping, and community and youth organizing to learning how to prepare garden-grown goodies. Attendees will also be able to experience multiple exhibitors’ work from Boson-area agriculture, gardening, and environmental organizations.

The event will also feature the annual Community Garden Awards presentations, honoring individuals, garden groups, and non-profit organizations with the “Hall of Fame,” “Rookie Gardener of the Year,” and “Most Valuable Gardener” awards.
