Healthy Kingston for Kids School and Community Garden Committee Offers Free BuddyPress Workshop.


On Tuesday, December 6th from 10:00am – 2:00pm the Healthy Kingston for Kids School and Community Garden Committee is offering a free four hour instructional workshop on how to use BuddyPress, an open source social networking software package that can transform a word press website  into a social network platform.

The workshop will take place at the Everett Hodge Center located at 15-21 Franklin Street in Kingston and led by web developer Mark Marshall of the Kingston Digital Corridor. The group will transform an existing word press site “Kingston City Gardens Network” into a dynamic and exciting garden site that will become a resource for the city of Kingston.

There are 25 slots, and only community members who are able to commit to the four hour program are encouraged to sign-up by contacting Rebecca Martin at kingstonlandtrust@gmail.com by November 30th.

Snacks will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring a lap top and a bagged lunch.
