DeKalb County Community Gardens will host its organizing meeting of the 2019 growing season at 6 p.m. Monday, April 29.

The meeting will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of DeKalb, 158 N. Fourth St. in DeKalb, and is free and open to the public. A potluck community dinner will start the meeting with soup and bread prepared by Monika Merryman of Monika’s Organic Bakery and salad from Jackie DeCleene and Adrian Lopez of Healthy AF Nutrition.

The event will be an opportunity to get an update on DCCG activities and hear about some new projects for the organization. Attendees can learn about upcoming DCCG events, workshops, volunteer opportunities and prairie restoration.

“Our kick-off has become a kind of reunion and new member orientation at the same time,” Dan Kenney, DCCG founder and executive director, said in a news release. “Last year we had nearly 100 people attend. It is a great event. A lot of fun and very informative for those who want to learn more about DCCG and to get involved.”

This year’s event also will include a seed swap. Attendees are encouraged to bring seeds from last year’s garden to share.

DCCG is a local nonprofit organization that provides access to fresh, sustainably grown organic vegetables for those in need. To date, DCCG manages more than 15 acres of growing space that has produced more than 175,000 pounds of food for local food pantries, day care centers, schools, community meal locations, senior centers/housing units, as well as Meals on Wheels.
