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