Garden Workshops

Come learn with us in the garden!

Each of our gardens hosts workshops, demos and classes on site for people of all ages and skills. Learning how gardening together connects us with our neighbors, helps us eat well and builds community. Each class is tailored to address seasonal issues in the garden.

Spaces are limited so sign up early. All classes are based on a suggested donation of $15, but no one is turned away.
