Local author Illène Pevec discusses the benefits of gardening and the positive impact it can have on youth, particularly underprivileged and at-risk teens. Pevec's book "Growing A Life" includes the voices of more than ninety youth gardeners from across the US including teens from Roaring Fork High, CRMS, and Yampah Mountain. Pevec and local youth from the book will read excerpts and discuss local school and community gardening projects. Refreshments will be served. This program is free and open to the public.
