Latitude's community garden "Green the District" workshops

As many of you know Latitude has a brand new space on Manchester Street, Lexington's Distillery District. For the first time we an opportunity to have a garden. Earlier in the year we came across a funding opportunity via IHDI at the University of Kentucky. Around this we created two community gardening workshops to help "Green the District". The workshops were open to the public. Thanks to Ryan Koch of SeedLeaf for organizing both workshops. The first workshop in April was called gardening basics and featured a segment on creating a worm habitat. See our exciting video on that- here!
The second workshop in June was all about what to do with your vegetables once grown. We also created designs which SeedLeaf will use on cards - as fundraising material for thier wonderful oragnization. Many thanks to SeedLeaf and all those (in addition to Latitude artists) who attended and contributed to our workshops.
