Bodega Garden: A beginners guide to urban farming.
Time & Location
About the Event
A guide to indoor growing that is accessible from your local store bought vegetables. We will learn how to preserve, recycle, regrow and be a gardener within the comfort of your window sill, or fire escape. The intention of this workshop is to open our ancestral creative spirit of what can be possible to grow at home and can be used for cooking or healing remedies. Even if it's starting from seed or transplanting from a local flower shop. We give homage to Lenapehoking land, sharing our appreciation to the plant diversity that is existing in the Northern East.
A workshop facilitated by Kellen Insfran aka Ki (she/her, They/them), a first generation Hondurena/Latinx/Queer NYC native. Kellen is a chef, farmer, artist, or a kitchen duende when collecting common weeds at the park for personal healing aides or to
make a refreshing salad. Ki is currently a farming apprentice at Earth Matter Farms, and is in her last year studying at Farm School NYC. During her cooking journey she has felt a yearning to figure out ways to connect food to the South Bronx community and all over. Seeing that there is a lack of nutritious food in certain neighborhoods, she strongly felt that farming would have to be part of this journey in understanding where our food comes from.
