Living Soil & Plant Life class well attended and informative

More than 25 community members gathered last Saturday morning at Baxter Community Center for an informative class on Living Soil and Plant life presented by OKT collaborative partner, Clinton Boyd, PhD. The members of the OKT team appreciate Clinton’s contributions to our work as he shares his knowledge and sees to it that all of our gardeners and market vendors have their soil tested for chemical contaminants.

This Saturday, Our Kitchen Table hosts the garden education workshop “Living Soil & Plant Life.” Join biochemist Clinton Boyd, PhD for an enlightening chat about healthy soil, soil testing and how to grow a successful, chemical-free food garden wherever you live.

Do you live in the Eastown, SECA/Southtown, Baxter or Garfield Park neighborhood?  OKT is looking for more folks to join our yard-gardeners program. OKT yard gardeners are provided valuable gardening resources including organic starter food plants, compost, containers for container gardening, garden tools and a garden coach.

Working with neighborhood folks to grow food in their yards or on their porches and patios is one way to bring more healthy food into our urban communities.
