The Cancer Thriver's Network (CTN) hosted a zoom event for their group on March 27, 2022. The event was entitled, "Preparing your garden for Spring". This program was a modification of our original plans for the Hazon funds due to Covid complications. Twenty two women attended this zoom event where master gardener, Judy Front, educated them on a variety of topics such as: how to plant and upkeep the greenery at their homes, composting, no dig gardens, preparing seedlings as well as shared community resources for planting and composting. All participants who attended received a gift package that was mailed to their homes with items that correlated with event. The Cancer Thrivers Network program coordinator received positive feedback from the participants on this event and heard from a few that they would like to do an additional education event with even more information about composting. We appreciated Hazon providing the CTN with the name of a couple of potential speakers, once of which was Judy Front, who facilitated this zoom presentation.
