Gardening with Emma

If you’ve heard adults say, “Kids these days aren’t interested in gardening,” 14-year-old Emma Biggs can share the flip side of the story. In this workshop, she talks about the fun she has in her own urban garden and how she inspires friends and neighbors to garden and to grow new plants. Always looking for more space, Emma gardens on the roof, on the driveway, in wicking beds, in the ground, and in a neighbor’s yard. She grows more than 130 tomato varieties, giant tomatoes, and lots of fun and unusual plants. Leave this talk with fun project ideas (sunflower house!) and fun plants (exploding seed pods anyone?) that can help draw young people (and adults) into gardening.
