This in-person, two-day workshop is designed to provide participants with the knowledge, skills, and resources to plan, develop, and sustain an edible school or community garden.  Participants must attend both days.

Day 1 (in the classroom): Be ready for an action-packed day focused on developing and implementing a sustainable garden program.  Participants will describe how a garden extends beyond the “site” to reinforce community-wide PSE efforts, build a garden strategic plan, and practice developing and delivering garden program messaging that will resonate with any audience.

Day 2 (in the garden): Dig your hands into the soil, and discover new techniques in this all-day garden skills workshop.  Focused on designing your garden space and conducting a garden analysis, participants will classify soil types, determine when and where in the garden to plant crops, demonstrate harvesting techniques, and install a drip irrigation system.

Space is limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.  If you are interested in attending, please fill out the registration form.  Additional trainings will be held throughout the state in FFY 25.
