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. 

This year's Gathering will feature special guest speaker Aziz Dehkan, Executive Director of the New York City Community Garden Coalition. Aziz will share some of the advocacy and organizing work of the coalition, as well as the findings of their "Gardens Rising" initiative regarding community gardens and stormwater capture.

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

More than a dozen local environmental and agricultural organizations will share their work in the exhibitors' gallery.
