Past Events

Garden Tools Swap, April 2022

Massanutten Regional Library (Central Branch), Harrisonburg, VA

Bring a tool, take a tool! Gardeners with thumbs from green to brown gathered to find helpful items new to them, or new homes for items no longer wanted.

Seed Saving Workshop, November 2020

Jason Meyers Benner, Keezletown, VA

Learn practical seed saving techniques and tips for successful seed saving. Jason Meyers, his partner Janelle, and their three daughters live and farm together on 6 acres in Keezletown, VA. They work with a large variety of plants–grains, fruits, nuts and vegetables–all grown for their own use, and they save seeds from most of the varieties they grow. Jason is passionate about regionally appropriate plant and animal varieties, conserving and promoting established varieties and developing new ones as needed.

Swimming Against the Current, October 2020

Leons Kabongo, Young Jupiter Market Garden, Harrisonburg

A conversation with Leons Kabongo about his Young Jupiter Market Garden at Our Community Place and small-scale farming in the age of COVID-19.
