C.L.A.S.P. HOSTS FIRST COMMUNITY GARDEN SUMMIT


University community gardeners from across the nation come together for the first time at the University of Houston for the First Annual National University and College Community Garden Summit on April 8–9. University of Houston’s Community Learning Agricultural Sustainability Program (schools to the summit to discuss different aspects of maintaining a community garden and meet with their peers.

“The purpose of the summit is to share best practices, share solutions and answers to problems and questions and grow together as a community,” said Leah Wolfthal, C.L.A.S.P. Coordinator.

Eleven schools attended the summit sessions held in the multipurpose rooms in Calhoun Lofts. Friday evening, participants were given a tour of the Houston area community gardens and a moonlit walk through Memorial Park. Guests had the option of organic, local dining at either SNAP Kitchen or Field of Greens.

The next morning, participants had the option to rise early for Relaxation Garden Yoga followed by check-in and breakfast. Six sessions explored topics such as the basics of starting a garden, student involvement and marketing your garden, fiscal sustainability, and gardening for health. One session also discussed environmental sustainability to look at ways to conserve water and energy, composting, rooftop gardening and aquaponic gardening practices. The last session explored options for connecting the community to your garden, whether the academic or outside community.

“We hope schools will leave with relationships they can rely on for when they need help in the future and to also share their successes with,” Wolfthal said.
