If you are interested in or involved with community gardening, urban agriculture and the related environment, food or agriculture issues ... we hope you will come on out. We want to make connections, help people find others to work on projects, and - after the event - stay connected with each other.

The morning session - update on London Community Gardens Program Review (LCGPR); generation of topics for ... discussion groups to map out practical ways to evolve community gardening.

Lunch - this will be a brown bag affair - please bring your own lunch plus something to share with others at your table [we will have healthy snacks and beverages available prior to and during sessions]

The afternoon session - short presentations about various urban agriculture projects ... generation of topics ... to take back into discussion / work groups. As with the morning group work, we'll get back together to share ideas ... and come up with some ways to stay in touch and work together after the gathering

There will be information displays from local groups involved with community gardening, urban agriculture, environment and food ... and a "seed swap" table - contributions are welcome, but don't be shy about taking if you aren't bringing.
