It might be the doldroms of winter, but this is when community gardeners start thinking about the spring thaw, said Amy Milgrim of Sustainable Cherry Hill.
That's why her organization is hosting a "Food for Thought" fair at the Camden County Environmental Center today (1301 Park Blvd., Cherry Hill).
"We're all avid gardeners with different points of view, whether it's landscape or vegetable gardening," Milgrim said. "We thought it would be a great service and kind of put it out there to help market the local CSAs."
"We're all about education and connecting people," Milgrim said.
About 80 people have pre-registered for the free event, which is open to the public, and will offer four presentations from Camden County Master Gardeners and a TED talk about landscaping. Guests will have the chance to Meet representatives from local Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms and ask all kinds of questions.
