Montgomery Parks Community Garden Program for Foodie Fridays
Foodie Fridays is a monthly speaker series featuring farmers, educators, community organizers, food lovers, and changemakers. Presentations will occur on the fourth Friday of the month and will highlight why food matters and the many ways the food system impacts residents of Montgomery County.
Our first Foodie Fridays event – “Cultivating Traditions” – is a post Juneteenth celebration. Food is deeply rooted in history and place; past events and traditions have shaped what we eat and where we can find it. Listen to a panel of three local growers discuss how and why history, ancestral and traditional knowledge, and culturally important foods influence their farming practices. Panelists include Tonya Doka-Spandhla (Passion to Seed Gardening), Nia Nyamweya (Beauty Blooms Farm), and Anthony Cohen (Button Farm Living History Center).
