Join hundreds of gardeners from across the borough to kick off spring! This daylong conference will gather horticultural professionals and home gardeners alike to meet each other and learn new gardening strategies and techniques. This year’s Making Brooklyn Bloom, Gardening for a Resilient City, focuses on the local, regenerative resources at Brooklynites’ disposal to rebuild a more verdant, sustainable borough. Ideas and practices for metropolitan gardeners to make their green spaces thrive despite urban challenges are addressed in 18 workshops, six films, and various exhibits by community gardens and organizations from across the city. The keynote address “Cultivating Resilience: Diversity, Democracy, Community” will be given by Dr. Vandana Shiva—global environmental activist, author, and founder of Navdanya,
