Seed Swap at the Gardens at Bragaw
This year, the Gardens at Bragaw have opened for their second year, and all 44 plots are being used by northeast Anchorage residents to grow nutritious produce. On April 14, 2014, we held a seed swap and introduction to gardening workshop at the Alaska Museum of Science and Nature, where gardeners, community members, and friends and family came together to learn how to plant, and to have their questions answered by Cooperative Extension horticulturist Julie Riley. At the seed swap, attendees started seeds received through KGI’s Sow It Forward grant, and got to take home flats and extra seeds to start at home and eventually plant at their Gardens at Bragaw plot. One of our gardeners this year is Kimberly (at right in picture). Kimberly says, “I am a homeschooling parent and a community environmental educator. The community garden in Mountain View has given me a natural informal teaching lab for my kids and others in my community, not to mention the opportunity to share the excitement and sense of freedom that comes with growing our own fresh produce.” We’re excited to share another fantastic gardening season with gardeners like Kimberly, and with Kitchen Gardeners International!
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
