Gardening events

I’m starting a listing of area gardening events on this blog. If your organization has something scheduled, you can send the information in a message here or via e-mail to me at: cindy.hadish@gazettecommunications.com 

Here is one coming up this weekend: The state Local Foods Conference will be in Cedar Rapids on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 1-2. The Iowa Network for Community Agriculture’s annual conference will include a showing of the film, “King Corn” on Friday night at the African-American Museum in Cedar Rapids. Topics covered Saturday at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church include micro dairy practices, information for market and CSA gardeners and more, as well as a potluck lunch. The conference offers an opportunity to learn about local and sustainable food systems. There is a fee, depending on how many days you attend and if you are a member or not.
