Online course for beginning gardeners

  • Saturday, April 10, 2021, 10:00 AM - Saturday, May 15@ 12:00 PM

Would you like to grow healthy food for your household? 

CCE is offering a FREE gardening course to low-income county residents. This course includes six weekly classes geared toward beginning gardeners. Sign up now before the class is full! (link below)

We will cover how to:

  • plan a garden
  • plant seedlings
  • manage pests
  • use the harvest. 

The focus will be on creative ways to contain costs and build relationships within the community.

Seed to Supper will be offered online starting April 10, 2021 and meeting weekly on Saturdays until May 15th. Each class will be around 1.5-2 hours and will be taught by Erica LaFountain, Community Horticulture Educator, as well as several trained Master Gardener Volunteers.

Participants will receive garden kits and manuals to use during and after the course. The kits will include basic tools, seeds, potting mix, and a soil test for the participant’s garden plot. Adults with some space for gardening and internet access, will be best served this time around, though there are plans to offer a completely in-person version of this course when it is safe to do so.

Providing healthy food and a calming outdoor hobby for yourself and your family can be a powerful experience to counter stress. Participants will not only have an opportunity to increase their knowledge and skills related to food gardening, but also to connect to local resources and a support system to face their challenges.

To sign up, just fill out this form and we'll contact you soon!
