This is not a gardening class—it is crucial skills training for successful community gardening projects. Each session will provide an interactive opportunity for community members to gain leadership skills, access local resources, network, share and plan for both new and existing community gardening projects.  Past participants include schools aiming to provide students with hands-on gardening experience and nutrition education; “faith and food” congregations with goals of growing fresh produce for their members and community food banks; health clinics who want to engage their patients in healthy food production; and neighbors and apartment complex dwellers who garden together. With attendance, there will be opportunities to apply for Garden Project Start-Up Resources.

We encourage at least 2 people from each community project to attend.

Cost per session is $5-$30 sliding scale to cover learning materials.
