Our workshops are more hands-on than our regular classes. Here is our current list of workshops that we offer by invitation.
Building Garden Structures (One Project Per Session)
These occasional sessions will focus on building one structure that meets a specific garden need. During the workshop, instructors will review tools and techniques for garden construction, and then participants will be guided through building their own structure. Materials and a limited selection of tools will be provided; participants are encouraged to bring their own tools, if available.
(February-April & August-October, 2.5 hrs., $40-$100 depending on the project)
Cooking and Eating In Season
This workshop takes place in the kitchen. Each class will include demonstration, taste-testing, and hands-on practice. Emphasis is placed on creative use of especially bountiful producers (like zucchini)!
(March/June/September, 2.5 hrs., $40)
Preserving the Harvest
Each session of this hands-on workshop teaches a specific method of food preservation, and gives participants a chance to practice it.
(July-October, 2.5 hrs., $40)
Planning Your Garden in the Off-Season (3-Session Series)
You’ve bought some seeds, started some starts, and chosen a garden spot—but where will you plant what, and when? In this workshop series, we will address three dimensions of garden planning in depth: identifying your garden needs/wants and goal-setting (session 1), mapping your site and creating effective infrastructure for your garden space (session 2), and creating a garden timeline/calendaring your activities throughout the growing season (session 3).
(October-February, 2.5 hrs., $40 per session or $100 for all 3)
