Hosted by the Sustainable Food Center –

This 2-part Sustainable Food Center training is for teachers, parents, and community members interested in starting (or reviving) and sustaining a school or a community garden. If you are a teacher, you may attend for free; please register directly by emailing mehmling@sustainablefoodcenter.org. 5 additional need-based scholarships (non-teacher) are available; please email to request a spot.

Each training night will cover different content, so please plan to attend both nights. We will share the key components to a successful garden, including: organizing and building a strong garden team, creating a plan, site selection and basic design, managing the garden, and finding funds and resources to sustain the garden. You will also hear from a guest speaker and meet other school and community gardeners in the area. We won’t be covering basic gardening principles, but we can point you to relevant resources.

You can RSVP here.
