Kayla Agonoy:
“Grow Your Own Microgreens”


Please join us for the Beltsville Garden Club’s monthly meeting on Wednesday, October 24, 2018, 7:30 pm at the James Duckworth School, 11201 Evans Trail, Beltsville, Md.

Speaker Kayla Agonoy will explore how to grow microgreens in the home setting, to include creating the right growing conditions, sources for supplies, maintenance and harvesting. Microgreens are easy to grow and packed with nutrients. Samples of ECO City Farms' microgreens will be available for tasting. Join us for an informative, delicious and nutritious evening!

Kayla Agonoy is the Deputy Director of ECO City Farms, a non-profit educational urban farm in Prince George’s County. She is deeply connected to the communities of Riverdale and Bladensburg, where the ECO City farms are located, allowing her to connect her passion for the environment and food justice to her roots. She earned a degree in Biological Sciences from Salisbury University, and started her journey in urban agriculture with an apprenticeship at ECO City Farms, working alongside the farm manager on day-to-day operations. She now leads organization operations and youth environmental education.

The meeting is free and open to the public. Please bring a plant or plant-related item for the door prize table. Refreshments will be served after the meeting, and refreshment contributions are appreciated.
