From growing herbs and grafting apple trees to keeping goats and chickens in the city, a two-day summit will explore several topics for budding and experienced gardeners alike.
Attendees will find experts, resources and hands-on workshops at the South King County Urban Agriculture Food Summit. Now in its third year, the free summit is open to all who want to make the most of a small urban garden.
The two-day event will feature resource tables with information and activities ranging from small business development to native pollinator habitat. Experts will be available to talk about ideas.
One goal of the summit is to increase awareness and opportunities to develop urban agriculture in a region of King County that is recognized as a food desert.
