Dear CMT Garden Members:
the event below promises to shed light on the cutting edge technologies and direction of urban agriculture.
Please consider attending for our garden’s sake. It is one thing to take advice from peers with more experience; better to find up to date knowledge from a well qualified perspective. the Will Allen training costs $5K. And his Growing Power organization has a national outlook. Will Allen was a featured speaker at the Black Farmers and Urban Gardeners Conference last November.
On Saturday, June 4 the Ministry of Agriculture of Muhammad Mosque
is sponsoring Harlem’s first seminar on Growing Organic Vegetables in Your
Home. The seminar will be led by Sister Fajar Muhammad
who has a Masters in Urban Planning, Agriculture and Life
Science. She’s pursued gardening since she was 7 yrs of age.
She teaches gardening and entrepreneurship at the Learning Tree
Currently she’s taking the Will Allen course in Milwaukee and
bringing that knowledge back to the grassroots. That’s what
the seminar is about.
