This workshop will introduce you to techniques that will allow you to create a space of your own where you can grow your own organic food, free of pesticides and herbicides. Learn the detriments of GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) and the benefits of making and using compost to produce nutritious fruits and vegetables.

The goal of this series is to provide a platform for SW Philadelphia’s residents to share their rich and diverse knowledge. The workshops will be an opportunity to gather, share and learn relevant and enriching information that strengthens the community as a whole.

The workshop will be presented by Nefertari Muhammad who is a gardener, farmer, herbalist and activist certified in GMO and Compost Education.
