Forsyth Community Gardening will hold its next Community Garden Mentor Training on two Saturdays: February 20 & 27, 2016 from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm on both days.

The Community Garden Mentor training is for people interested in providing community organizing and horticultural guidance to a specific garden. We’ll cover the organizing skills and basic horticultural knowledge you need to start and sustain an active community garden! After completing the initial training, Mentors are matched with a community garden in Forsyth County. To continually develop their knowledge skills, and networks, Mentors also attend monthly potlucks, Sustainable Growing Series workshops, and other horticultural programs offered by Forsyth County Cooperative Extension.
