Celebrate the start of the gardening season! The 44th Annual Gardeners' Gathering brings Boston-area gardeners together for a free day full of informative workshops, engaging exhibitors, networking, and inspiration. Held at Northeastern University, the Gathering features more than two dozen workshops on everything from Healthy Soil to Urban Foraging. Urban homesteaders can learn about keeping bees or chickens, making fermented pickles, and growing gourmet mushrooms. Gardeners can hone their skills with workshops on garden planning, managing pests and diseases, and more. 

Follow the links to sign up if you want to teach a workshop, have a table in the exhibitors' gallery, or advertise in the brochure.

This year's Gathering will feature special guest speaker Aziz Dehkan, Executive Director of the New York City Community Garden Coalition. Aziz is an activist, community organizer, former organic farmer, and a tireless member of #Resist. He has worked for many social and environmental organizations including Mother Jones, The Coalition for the Homeless, The Fortune Society, and Peace Action Network of NY. Aziz will address the history, current state, and future of community gardens in NYC, looking at them through the lens of social justice and climate change protection. He’ll speak to gentrification and racial inequality and delve into how community gardens can be in the vanguard of climate change monitoring, adaption, and mitigation.

Mayor Walsh will deliver a keynote address and present the annual Community Garden Awards to an outstanding Rookie Garden of the Year, Most Valuable Gardener, and Hall of Fame garden.

A diverse array of local environmental and urban agriculture organizations will share their work in the exhibitors' gallery.
