Event Description

The Hudson Valley has so much to offer in the way of fresh, local food. These lectures will highlight what goes into producing it. In addition to informative talks from farmers, brewers, beekeepers and experts on creating nutrient-rich soils, representatives from Scenic Hudson will discuss our Foodshed Conservation Plan, a blueprint for ramping up farmland protection throughout the Hudson Valley.  

After offering basic tips for starting a garden with children, educators from Hudson Valley Seed will demonstrate hands-on projects for garden-based learning and inspiration. Participants will receive a seed starter kit and ideas for beginning a window box or backyard garden.

QUESTIONS OR TO RSVP? Contact Scenic Hudson Parks Event and Volunteer Coordinator Anthony Coneski:, 845-473-4440, ext. 273.

Location: The River Center at Scenic Hudson’s Long Dock Park
