The Garden Literacy Project

History:Garden Literacy was officially launched in 2015 through the cooperation and guidance of an Advisory Council (see below). The idea for Garden Literacy stems from exploratory work done by James Swasey, Amy Small, and Dan Camenga in early 2013. We see the programmatic activities and organizational structure of Garden Literacy evolving over time as collaborations with other organizations are established.
