Seed to Supper

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.

We are seeking passionate volunteers to facilitate Seed to Supper classes in English, as well as individuals who can teach classes in Spanish.
• The 6-hour training prepares you to teach the 6-week course
• Receive a training certificate, meet new people, and get involved with your community
