    Hi! The recording of last night's Community Chat on Garden Layout is attached and resources that were shared are included below. Thank you to everyone who attended for a fantastic conversation! I loved the enthusiasm and ideas that were shared. 

    I also want to let everyone know that KidsGardening is working on a youth garden design course that will be available later this year. Stay tuned for that!
