Baton Roots Connects with Local Gardeners at Library

Baton Roots Sr. Program Coordiantor Mitchell Provensal speaks at Garden Discoveries

On Saturday, January 13th, Baton Roots Senior Program Coordinator was the featured speaker at Garden Discoveries. Garden Discoveries is a free monthly series hosted by East Baton Rouge Parish Library System and the Baton Rouge Botanic Garden Foundation on the 2nd Saturday of each month.

“Urban Farming With Baton Roots” highlighted the critical need for more farmers, including younger farmers, to enter the food landscape, as well as the benefits of urban farming and how Baton Roots is helping to shift the landscape of urban farming in Baton Rouge. 

Baton Roots is grateful to community partners like EBRPL and the Baton Rouge Botanic Garden Foundation for continuing the necessary work of educating community members about garden topics and connecting gardens to each other so that we can all grow together! 

The next Garden Discoveries series focuses on herb growing with master naturalist Art Scarborough. To register for that event, go here
