Chester County Food Bank, in partnership with Penn State Extension Master Gardeners of Chester County, is thrilled to offer Seed to Supper, a beginning gardening course for growing veggies at home on a budget.
Designed for adults, the free classes highlight practical, low-cost techniques for planning, planting, maintaining, and celebrating the harvest of a successful vegetable garden. Classes include onetime 2-hour sessions on vegetable gardening for beginners, container gardening, and an in depth 6-week course. Classes are taught both indoors and outdoors with hands-on activities. Teams of facilitators support participants as they learn to plan, plant and harvest garden produce – increasing participants’ access to fresh produce and improving overall food security.
