ecological belonging: what’s natural? what’s unnatural?
Saturday, September 21, 10-11:30am
Westmoor Park Community Gardens (at the corner of Flagg and Mountain Rd), West Hartford, Connecticut 
Join biologist Adolfo Sánchez-Blanco (@dr.bioforever) and artist Brooke Toczylowski as they discuss what’s natural and unnatural in our environment. Using the garden as a living example, we will consider how humans have been vectors for invasive species and how we might cultivate regenerative food systems. This workshop includes a tour of the garden—exploring both weeds and cultivated species, a group discussion, and a hands-on work session where we will prepare part of the garden for a nitrogen-fixing cover crop.
  • Limited to 20 people.

  • Note: The garden is on uneven ground so may be difficult to access for those with limited mobility. It is, though, right next to a mostly flat parking area where some of our time together will take place.

  • Part of our time together will be hands-on. Dress for the dirt and weather, wear sun protection, and bring water. Optional items to bring: garden gloves, kneeling pad.  

  • You will receive two email reminders before the event, including a google pin, parking information, and nearby bathroom directions. 

  • Please contact with any questions or cancel ahead of time if you are unable to make it, so we can make room for people on the waiting list. 

This project received support from the Connecticut Office of the Arts, which also receives funding from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), a federal agency.
