Green Tonic: Urban Gardening for Health & Wholeness Podcast — Final Edition, Rachel Flynn & Leni Sorensen

by Jonah Holland, PR & Marketing Coordinator Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

I’m pleased to release the last two podcasts featuring Rachel Flynn and Leni Sorensen, who spoke recently at our symposium:  Green Tonic: Urban Gardening for Health & Wholeness.

Rachel Flynn, the City of Richmond’s Director of Community Development, spoke candidly about what’s working well in Richmond and what’s not, and offered some of her ideas about the future of Richmond’s urban plan.  Be sure to stay tuned to the end, for the audience question and answer session.

Leni Sorensen, African-American Research Historian at  Monticello, gives a very interesting in depth historical overview of agriculture in Virginia.
