The Roots of GardenShare
Phil Harnden
January 18, 2016

GardenShare traces its roots to the North Country Garden School, which I founded in 1994 as a way for people (including novices like me) to learn skills for gardening in northern New York State. Led by veteran gardeners, the Garden School taught an ecologically responsible style of gardening appropriate for our cold climate. Each year several hundred gardeners attended our workshops, tours, films, and lectures.
