In this container and small space garden workshop we will be covering various topics around growing food with limited space available. We will emphasize using moveable containers (great for renters) to grow more than you might think possible, discuss container gardening 101, and go over which crops will give you the most bang for your buck when you just don’t have enough room to grow everything.
The Urban Harvest was created by Instructor Elise Pickett in 2014 to help others cultivate a more sustainable home and healthy diet by teaching them about growing their own vegetables at home. Her journey to healthy eating and growing her own food began when she learned about our current food system and the impacts that it has on our health.
General Admission: $35

Although our base price for this course is $35, Sweetwater is a nonprofit that puts on educational programs for elementary schools in the neighborhood and teaches them about food systems and basically where their food comes from. We also host community volunteer days and a farmer’s market every Sunday from November through May. You can donate to Sweetwater in addition to your course fee if you’d like to help us continue our programs. And if you want to get your hands dirty in our gardens you can contribute your time by volunteering Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday mornings from 9-12.
