Kyra Alex at DI Stonington HS Gardens
Kyra Alex at DI Stonington HS Gardens

Prepare to have some of your gardening practices shaken up and made greener and easier! Kyra Alex gardens in Stonington, grows all of her own vegetables and supervises The Garden Project.

Public gardening on a shoe string, limited water, as well as inspiration from off-beat, old-time renegade gardeners has formed her climate-friendly techniques. Imagine less watering, increased tolerance of beneficial weeds, and making use of available (cheap or local) materials. These are the methods she’s embraced with annually increasing returns.

Come on Saturday, June 3, experience Kyra’s enthusiasm and refreshingly irreverent practices and learn how to move your gardening into a more sustainable future.
