Sharing spaces. Building communities.

Interested in learning how to share space in your community for fun projects like composting and gardening? We can help.

We’re hosting the “Shared Spaces: Community Gardens and Composting” workshop Oct. 26. This free, in-person event at Bee Ridge Community Garden will show you how to set up community composting and community gardening activities. We’ll also take a quick tour of the garden to explore its features and related compost system. Randy Penn, waste reduction agent for UF/IFAS Extension Sarasota County, and I will share tips and field your questions. Registration is limited, though, so reserve your spot today.
