On Tuesday, Sept. 8, the University of Maryland will launch a new university calendar that will streamline and replace the FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD calendars. Beginning Sept. 8, you will be able to submit your events to the new campus calendar for review and approval, much like the current process for FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD. On Sept. 8, if you visit this website, you will automatically be redirected to the new calendar. In addition, a new weekly email called UMD This Week will launch on Sept. 8, replacing the daily FYI email. UMD This Week will be delivered at the beginning of every week and will highlight top upcoming events. The email will include details on how to access the new calendar and how to submit events for approval. Questions? Email

Arboretum Talk -- Elements of a Successful Community Garden

When: Wednesday, December 05, 2012 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM
Where: Arboretum outreach Center at the Apiary
Event Type(s): Recreation

This talk is a "must" for anyone involved in food gardening, or who wants to get involved! Christie Balch from UM Extension will share with us her insights and experience with successful community gardening. Christie came to Maryland from Troy Gardens, a community farm in Madison, Wisconsin, and she now heads UMD's Sheridan Street Garden at the Center for Educational Partnership in Riverdale. With her interns, she is generating amazing changes to the climate for urban agriculture in Prince George's County (chickens, anyone?). She is a dynamic speaker, so don't miss this one! (Maybe we can also ask her talk a bit about her recent travel to Afghanistan where she trained extension educators.)
