Earth Friendly Eating

While I was at the Growing a Garden class Sara set up a Unity Gardens booth at the Earth Friendly Eating Conference at the downtown library. Its the 4th year for the conference put on by Judith Rubleske. Judith is an RN working for W.I.C. Judith started 1 Unity Garden in 2009 and in 2010 had 2 Unity Gardens. In 2011 she is starting her own group of community gardens called The Westside Community Gardens. Judith is a promoter of growing and eating healthy food grown locally.

The focus of the conference went in a few directions .

Judith spoke about building community through gardening

The keynote speaker Tim Bayer spoke about living simple in order to be kinder to our environment.

The Cities Dave Thomas spoke about city land use for community gardens.

It was a great event. The Unity Gardens Booth was pretty busy . We had a chance to promote our new free community plots at the LaSalle Square Unity Garden. We had many inquries about the gardens.
