Presented by Roger Doiron
Scarborough resident Roger Doiron is founder and director of Kitchen Gardens International. He first became involved with food issues at the height of the "Mad Cow" furor when he was the head of the Friends of Earth's European office in Brussels.
Roger is a highly published expert and award winner in the concept and design of kitchen gardens. He won the United Nations Foundation award for the kitchen garden he planted at the White House. Roger wants to empower everyone to grow a garden—and attending this program is a great way to start! The program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
