Grow Local recently wrapped up a successful round of spring classes, including four Basic Organic Gardening series, five Citizen Gardener trainings, and two School Garden Leadership trainings. Grow Local’s Basic Organic Gardening & Citizen Gardener classes are taught by some amazing community members who love gardening and are inspired to share this knowledge with others. Classes took place at a variety of locations, including several under-served elementary schools, faith-based centers, and an eldercare center. Hundreds of participants gained new knowledge and skills about how to grow their own healthy, local food, and were inspired to start gardening.
The next Grow Local class will be a Community Garden Leadership training on Saturday, June 16, which explains how to start and sustain a successful community garden project – look for more details and registration information coming soon on SFC’s Events page. The next round of Basic Organic Gardening, Citizen Gardener, and School Garden Leadership trainings will start up in the fall, so check our Events page this summer for details about those.
