Community Gardens and Sustainable Agriculture
Today’s episode explores community gardening and its relationship to sustainable agriculture.
Daniel Prial, sustainable agriculture specialist from NCAT’s Northeast Regional Office in Keene, New Hampshire, has a conversation with folks from Antioch University New England’s Community Gardens Connections program.
This episode looks at the importance of community gardening as part of the greater food system. Students from Antioch University New England’s Environmental Studies Department, who are also coordinators of the Community Gardens Connections program, give advice on how to establish and maintain community gardens. They even touch on the role that farmers can play in community gardening initiatives.
In this podcast, we’ll hear from doctoral candidate, Jess Gerrior, and from Emma Rohleder, Jess Barnes, and Rachel Brice, who are all students in Environmental Studies and also co-coordinators of the Community Gardens Connections program at Antioch University New England.
