Guess presenter Amy Bouska, Urban Conservationist with the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship will be speaking about watershed basics, stormwater and best management practices to be installed in an urban landscape.
Johnson County Soil and Water Conservation District is sponsoring a pilot project in the Longfellow neighborhood. The Community Meal Project (CMP) aims to promote dialogue within the community about urban conservation, local foods, and social and environmental impacts of food systems.
CMP will kick off this April with events on water conservation and management, followed by May events on gardening 101 and soil health, and much more throughout 2014. In spring of 2015 we’ll invite neighborhood and city-wide residents to a meal to network and dialogue about these pertinent issues and to celebrate community and food.
May, June, and beyond
Stay tuned to our website and Facebook page for gardening events in May and June and much more throughout the year.
