Planning a Fall/Winter Garden:
Extend your growing season this year by planting a Fall garden! In North Carolina’s climate you can have a luscious garden all the way into winter! Kale, chard, brussel sprouts, lettuce, spinach,carrots, beets, and fava beans are just a few of the plants you can enjoy as the air gets a little cooler. Join Terri Gardner and The Abundance foundation to learn season extending practices based on organic companion planting, crop rotation, and permaculture principles.
Dress in garden-appropriate clothes.

Workshop is limited to 20 people 14 years old an older or 13 and younger with an accompanying adult

Terri Gardner is a self-proclaimed bookophile, traveler, “foodie”, plant nerd and gardener. Born in Mexico she moved to North Carolina at eight years old and lived there until graduating with a BA in International Studies/Anthropology from the UNC at Greensboro in 2009.
Afterwards, she moved to Seattle for grad school and earned her MA in Environment and Community from Antioch University Seattle in 2011. For over four years she has been an avid Permaculture student and youth instructor, earning her Permaculture and Food Systems certification last June and acting as Teacher Assistant for Antioch University’s Permaculture course that summer.
Terri also gained her Master Composter/Soil Builder certification through Seattle Public Utilities and Seattle Tilth and utilized this while working on her thesis project on Permaculture and Social Change. As a part of her project she wrote a vermicomposting curriculum for Seattle Parks and Recreation which is currently being used in their Parks Urban Food Systems (PUFS) pilot program.
Last year, Terri spent four months in Europe conducting independent research on international food culture; specifically looking at the connections between personal histories of food, food as a commodity, and the agricultural production of what we eat in different countries. She has since moved back to her hometown of Chapel Hill and started Gardner’s Green, a garden consultation and instruction business.
Through this venture she will be teaching several workshops, including a worm composting series through the Town of Chapel Hill which runs six weeks starting February 4th and vermicomposting and permaculture workshops at the Abundance Foundation in May.
