This free 6-week beginning gardening course gives participants the tools they need to start a garden and grow their own food on a budget. Participants also get tips on how to use fresh produce as a part of a budget-friendly and healthy way to build self-sufficiency.
This is a joint program of Oregon Food Bank and OSU Extension Service and HDFFA. HDFFA serves as Central Oregon’s Seed to Supper host.
