Virtual Garden Tour: Share Your Gardening Experiences!

We all have knowledge and experiences to share with each other and I would love to share your urban farming adventures with the Growing Roots Together community. I'm looking for South Snohomish County residents who are interested and willing to have me come to your garden or urban farm to interview you and share your story/photos so that others may be inspired to grow their own food for themselves and for their community, start a worm bin or compost system, or participate in a community garden. Contact me if you're interested!

As always, feel free to email me if you need any gardening info, help with gardening resources, or have ideas to share.

Together we grow!
