Event Overview
The ACCJ-Kansai Community Service Committee, in collaboration with the Osaka YMCA International School (OYIS), is pleased to announce the Healthy Urban Gardening (HUG) workshop event. We hope to inspire those interested in growing their own vegetables to take part in our garden planting activities, which include: · Joshua Bryan (OYIS student), presenting a video about his experience composting and growing vegetables · Cyd Forster and Girl Scouts, presenting a hands-on compost workshop where you will learn how composting can reduce CO2 emissions · Viviana Di Blasi, presenting the Seed Bomb Workshop and discussing how we can increase the green areas in our cities · The OYIS team, presenting the Raised Planter Bed Assembly/Vegetable Planting and Cropping Workshop We will also be introducing Food Bank Kansai, a Kobe-based charity which we have been supporting for many years. Take this chance to meet our presenters in person and learn all about how you can have your own healthy urban garden. The HUG initiative is the next step towards completing our community circle, donating fresh vegetables to single-parent families in desperate need of our support. As part of our continuing educational campaign, the ACCJ-Kansai Community Service Committee endeavors to spread information about climate change, get people involved, and inspire action through events and workshops.
