Are you an experienced gardener interested in sharing your knowledge with others? Chester County Food Bank, in partnership with Penn State University Extension Master Gardeners, is thrilled to launch Seed to Supper, a beginning gardening course for growing veggies at home on a budget.
The Seed to Supper curriculum, available in English and Spanish (Siembra la Cena), is a 6-week course (2-hours per week) that covers: garden planning, building healthy soil, caring for the garden and harvesting/using your bounty. Classes are led by teams of 2 facilitators and are taught both indoors and outdoors with hands-on activities for 8-15 adult participants.
