The Division of Wellness and Nutrition is excited to announce its participation in the 7th annual Rooting DC conference, a free, all-day gardening forum that provides education about urban food production and consumption to cultivate health and preserve the environment.  Members of the Healthy Schools Initiatives team will be on-hand; presenting a workshop titled “Skills of a Successful School Garden Coordinator” as well as tabling with information on the Healthy Schools Act and FoodCorps.  

Rooting DC offers more than 70 workshops for beginner gardeners (e.g., seed starting, soil remediation, and irrigation), seasoned horticulturists (e.g., beekeeping, mushroom cultivation, permaculture design), and citizens invested the larger food justice landscape. An information fair with over 50 green businesses and nonprofits will take place from 8:30am-1:30pm. 

 This conference typically draws over 800 attendees so reserve your spot now.
