FRESH presents a square foot gardening workshop! Hoping to grow a lot of vegetables in a little space? Join experts from Backyard Growers to learn about the square foot gardening method! You’ll learn how to maximize production through interplanting, proper spacing, and succession plantings. Workshop will also cover the benefits of growing in a raised bed. Bring your garden questions and get ready to plan for a bountiful three-season harvest!

FRESH is a six-week exhibition, with accompanying workshops and presentations, hosted by the Rocky Neck Art Colony (RNAC) and Backyard Growers

This is an exciting collaboration by two inspiring non-profits—Backyard Growers, which encourages an active relationship with food and the earth, and Rocky Neck Art Colony, which encourages and promotes excellence in the arts.

In this exhibition, artists from all over New England will present works that reflect on the theme FRESH, exploring the ways in which food connects us to the earth, nourishes us, and ties us to warmth, family, friends, and memories. Join us in celebrating the new life that emerges as we leave the dark of winter for the optimism of spring! Contemporary, experimental and traditional art in all media will be on view.
