It’s that time of year again – ready your green thumbs and register for Rooting DC 2015!
Where: Wilson High School, Washington, DC
When: Saturday, February 28, 2015 from 9am-4pm
Check out our new website (http://rootingdc.org/) to see this year’s 80 workshop sessions (from permaculture design to cooking unconventional edibles to DC food policy 101) and 50 information fair tables. While you’re there, explore our map of DC’s growing food system and dig-in to blog posts from partners #rootingdc across the District!
For the past eight years, the Rooting DC forum has been the central meeting ground for individuals and nonprofits looking to grow a healthier food system in the nation’s capital. What started as a small gathering of like-minded urban gardeners in 2007, has grown into an annual event with more than 1200 individual attendees from across the city, and more than 60 local nonprofits and urban farm collectives sharing their knowledge and learning from one another.
This year our goal is to “activate” the Rooting DC network. We’re turning Rooting DC from a noun into a verb, because so many of us in this city are Rooting DC every day.
