Turning Your Brown Thumb Green: Row and Hoe Gardening with Alfred Hall 

Fried green tomatoes, crisp bell peppers, and snapping fresh green beans are just some of the benefits for those who can successfully plant and cultivate a garden.  Sadly not all of us have the green thumb, but we have a solution. Join Miami University Regionals Alumni and Students as we host locally renowned gardener Alfred Hall as he shows us the tips and tricks to make your garden grow!

Alfred Hall is a certified square foot gardener, a practicing urban farmer and a much sought-after guest speaker at gardening, arts and cultural events throughout Butler County, Ohio. After a three-decade international career in quality assurance he retired to his hometown of Hamilton.

As a co-founder of the non-profit Hamilton Urban Garden Systems (HUGS) Organization, since 2012 he has been growing, processing, and distributing organic locally grown food; educating the citizens of Butler County on the health benefits of a sustainable Local Food System; providing free community garden plots to Hamilton City residents; and donating fresh produce to local Food Pantries and Community Meal Centers.

After retiring from HUGS in 2020 he began growing organic produce for New Life Mission (NLM), a local community meal center and food pantry.  In the Spring of 2021 he will expand the produce garden at NLM and co-lead a Public Private Partnership initiative that is installing a 9,000 square foot pollinator garden on City owned vacant lots on South 4th Street in Hamilton, Ohio.
