This curriculum is designed for adults gardening on a budget. While there are no specific income guidelines for participants, we prioritize partnerships with Host Agencies that serve community members living on low incomes.
Classes will cover the following topics: garden site preparation and soil health, garden planning, planting, maintenance, and harvest.
Classes are taught by trained volunteer Garden Educators, typically in teams of two.
Each course series includes approximately 12 hours of class time, typically divided into six two-hour sessions held at the same time each week for 6 consecutive weeks.
Each course has 8-15 participants who commit to attending all classes in the series.
Interactive, classroom-based lessons are designed to be taught indoors during the rainy season in order to prepare participants for spring gardening. The program includes built-in flexibility to incorporate hands-on activities, but Host Agencies are not required to have on-site gardens in order to offer this course.
Class participation, course booklets, certificates of completion and gardening supplies are provided to class participants at no charge.
