This year’s International Women’s Day theme is Choose to Challenge. All are welcome to our annual community event in reflection and celebration of girls’ and women’s empowerment.
We will provide germination cups and trays to sow seeds for your own spring and summer gardens. Participants will leave with their future garden in hand, ready to transplant to pots or plots at home upon the arrival of spring. To honor our local frontline females, farm and hospitality workers we will plant a tree in the Garden Park’s outdoor yoga studio area. Make it a date – bring a friend for a Women’s Day garden retreat. Ivana Nedeelchev, SEC’s volunteer coordinator will provide spanish translation. Julia Megna, SEC’s Education Project Manager and owner of 100AcreGreenery.com looks forward to celebrating the power of women past, present and future with you.
Sonoma Garden Park was protected by Ag + Open Space in November of 2011 for recreation and preservation of its natural resources, and learning classroom environment for agriculture field trips for nearby elementary schools through Sonoma Ecology Center’s “Growing Discovery” program . The 6-acre property, hidden in eastern Sonoma, is an incredible public park and working garden site in Sonoma Valley, containing a wide array of habitats alongside sustainably designed systems for both agriculture use and landscaping purposes.
There is no charge for this outing, which is made possible by the voters of Sonoma County who fund the work of Ag + Open Space with a quarter-cent sales tax.
