Collard Greens in Kabul: How Growing an Edible Garden Brought Health, Healing and Community to a War Zone

When: Sat., July 30, 11 a.m. 2016

Tina Singleton first learned to garden behind the high barbed wire walls of her compound in Kabul, Afghanistan. Now she shares her passion for creating fresh, colorful and healthy seed-to-table cuisine and explains how the simple act of planting a garden of lettuces, kale and, yes, collard greens, taught her that food is more than something you eat – food can help overcome racial, ethnic and religious differences. Singleton, a raw and vegan chef, instructor and aspiring farmer based on John’s Island, ends the event with a demonstration of her delicious Taverna Chocolate Cake.
