Prior Meeting Recaps:
September 20, 2020
During this online event, we discussed racial equity within the context of the HTR program and professional community. The goal of the meeting was to begin creating an anti-racist operational framework for NWTH and to identify actions that will promote equity within the HTR curriculum. We were honored to host guest speaker Lisa Ann Douglass, who completed the HTR program at PCC in 2019 and works as a garden assistant and educator at Greenspace Garden and Nursery in Wildwood, MO. Racial equity continues to be a priority for NWTH and will continued being discuessed in future meetings.

NWTH was graciously hosted by the coordinator of the Growing Minds Garden at the Serendipity Center in SE Portland, Nicolas Townsend, on 9/14/19. We had an amazing time hearing about their school and garden program, how they engage students in growing and cooking food, and tasting Purple Basil, Borage, Lamb's Quarters, SunGold Tomatoes, and French Sorrel.
