Hello, Ashtabula Grows Team! We are back on it…another year…a new landscape…
The impetus to start Ashtabula Grows was to build community and resilience during the pandemic. And we did – alongside many many community members who were equally engaged in a similar vision. Every week for 4 months we met online and discussed garden, permaculture, growing, soil in NE Ohio. What a blast!
We have a tentative schedule for this year which includes one virtual class a month and one in-person, out-of-doors-and-into-life farm tour. So, we will be meeting twice a month; one time in person and one time on Zoom.
