As Spring brings rain and regeneration, I am growing my anticipation of the upcoming Forest Garden Convergence!  The theme of this year’s convergence is “Deep Roots of Regeneration.”

The general plan is to have panel discussions on topics of Forest Gardening with family programming happening at the same time.  I am part of the family programming committee, and I’m excited to see how people of all ages respond to what we’re offering.  Programming is free for children under 14!  This makes me so happy!!  I’m really looking forward to the opportunity to network with other like minded people!  It promises to be an amazing day!  I’m counting the days until June 6…
