April and May Event Details

We hope you are enjoying the warm weather and are as eager as we are to get started in the garden.  There are a number of great events coming up at the Public Health Garden before the end of the semester!  We are located on the UMD College Park Campus between the School of Public Health and the Eppley Recreation Center.  We would love for you to come join us for the following events:
  • Saturday April 30, 10 am- 4pm: Maryland Day at the Public Health Garden
  • Sunday May 1, 5-10 pm: Goats and Gardens Part I
    • Stop by and visit us at the Public Health Garden to watch the Eco Goats (http://www.eco-goats.com/) eat our unwanted plants on our site.  We will have discussions about sustainable agriculture, free food, some music, and other activities outside! We will also have some plant and seed give-aways. 
    • Feel free to bring additional snacks, food or refreshments to share with fellow goat-watchers :)
  • Monday, May 2, 11-12, 1-2, or 3-4 pm: Sustainable Agriculture and Goats Demo
    • We are offering three different times to come meet Brian Knox of Eco-Goats to talk with him about sustainable agriculture and the use of goats for land management.

All events will be held at the site of the Public Health Garden (between the SPH and Eppley Rec Center).  If you want to help organize or have questions about the events, please contact publichealthgarden@gmail.com.  If you have a group that would like an individualized demo session with Eco Goats, please let use know and we will set it up for you. 
  
These events are funded in part by your Graduate Student Activities Fee. Thanks GSG!
  
We look forward to seeing you at the garden to celebrate all of our accomplishments this semester and get ready for implementation and construction!
