Springing Good Intentions Into Action – the Skillshare Weekend of this Spring

Headed to Weavers Way Food Co-op for some lunch material today, and
who do I run into but the masterminds behind The Home Grown Institute‘s conference Springing Good Intentions Into Action: Sarah Gabriel, Managing Director of The Home Grown Institute; Sally McCabe, Project Manager at the Garden Tenders & Green CIty Teachers, both programs of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society & Nic Esposito of Philly Rooted & author of Seeds of Discent, a book I’m currently savoring and available at Big Blue Marble Bookstore, the Northwest’s independent bookseller.

Turns out they were checking out the reclaimed lumber at Philadelphia Salvage
for hands-on workshops at the conference, to build raised beds & cold frames.

I got charged just listening in on their discussions. Highly recommend you consider this conference. It seems to be the skillshare weekend of this spring, March 23 – 25.
