Documenting and Preserving Garden Legacies: Part 2

Wednesday, December 2, 2020

5:30 p.m.7:30 p.m.

Join GreenThumb for our two part workshop series on oral history and community archiving. Community gardeners have shaped the history of New York City and it is critical that their experiences and legacies are preserved for future generations. Part 2 will focus on methods to archive and make community garden stories accessible using digital platforms such as wikimedia, social media, and online web exhibits. Participants will be provided with an introduction on how to conduct a community archive project design, identify record organization strategies and sharing their garden’s legacy with the greater public.

Please RSVP to receive the link to join the webinar.

This webinar will be co-facilitated by GreenThumb staff and Yvette Ramírez.
