Free Class: African American Traditions In Gardening View Calendar
Date: Saturday, February 25, 2017 At 10:00:00 AM
 

Saturday, February 25th at 10am – Justin Duncan, Sustainable Agriculture Specialist with NCAT (www.NCAT.org), presents “African American Traditions in Gardening.”

Justin Duncan will talk about the historical aspects of gardening in the African American community including the types of crops grown, their origins, their health benefits, and the methods used to grow them. He will also contrast and compare American traditions with Traditional African gardening. Join us for this incredibly interesting cultural class!

Justin has a BS in Agronomy from Prairie View A&M University and an MS in Plant Breeding from Texas A&M University. He’s spent years figuring out the nuts-and-bolts of successful organic farming in the humid South, concentrating mainly on sweet potatoes, strawberries, niche market ethnic crops, and drought mitigation techniques. He formerly served as the Houston region director of the Texas Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association and has a strong rapport with organic farmers in Eastern Texas.

American sign language interpreters will be present.
