Indulge in a day of gardening seminars to wash away the winter blues.

The presentations encouraged participants to contextualize future growth in terms of acts we begin today. The conference featured workshops and presentations that lay the groundwork for novice gardeners as they begin their journeys, in addition to sessions that promoted the continued education of more advanced gardeners. Listen to discussions that explicitly connect small acts of gardening with the larger potential for social justice and change and walk away with hard skills and theories that will allow you to plant seeds of change in your community and beyond.


Guest Speakers & Workshops

Workshops were provided by a hand-picked selection of experts and enthusiasts. Our theme for Beds & Breakfast 2021 is Planting Seeds of Change: Gardening as a Path Towards Empowerment, Justice, and Change. The selected speakers and projects represented gardening and food basics and gardening for environmental injustice. This year our interactive workshops include topics such as gardening 101, compost 101, season extension, building raised beds, seed saving, supporting local food systems, creating your own community garden space, oil health & the environment, and attracting native pollinators.
