We offer a variety of gardening workshops from local experts and staff instructors from April-June then September-December. Students are encouraged to participate whenever possible and many classes feature a take home item (like a mini terrarium). We hope to give you the techniques and inspiration to try new things at home, grow some food and make our city a greener and better place to live!
We do workshops on gardening basics like seed starting, propagation and composting. We also get into urban homesteading topics like backyard chickens and beekeeping. You’ll find specialty topics on the schedule too like growing mushrooms, making medicinal herb salves and tinctures as well as diy projects like vertical gardening with pallets and container growing.
Last Spring Lynn Landes of WildFoodies.org came to the farm to teach us to identify wild edibles that grow all around us and in the fall we offered a beginners wool spinning class inspired by our visiting lambs!
