Join Brookside Gardens on the final Friday in February each year for a daylong symposium dedicated to sustainable horticulture. Here is a look into 2011’s Green Matter’s Symposium.
In 2012, Green Matters: Urban Farming Pioneers, Brookside Garden’s third and final food-focused symposium, innovative approaches to feeding the world’s population will be highlighted. Featuring Dickson Despommier, Columbia University Emeritus Professor and author of The Vertical Farm: Feeding the World in the 21st Century, Darrin Nordahl, landscape architect and author of Public Produce, Ben Flanner, Head Farmer/CEO and co-founder of the Brooklyn Grange rooftop farm, and Jeff Semler Maryland State Coordinator of Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education, this year’s Green Matters will kindle your inner urban farmer and entice you to think about food production in wholly different ways.
