The Resourceful Garden Overview

The Resourceful Garden is a four-month community garden education program scheduled to begin Saturday, March 5, 2011 (3pm-Sunset). Join your community at the Growcology Learning Center every other Saturday as we support existing community gardens and help develop new community gardens. This program is being made available to churches, schools, hospitals, neighborhood organizations & backyard gardeners throughout the Southern California region.

This program is unique in that it provides a learn-and-apply model.  Participants receive training in every aspect of planning and maintaining a community garden, including irrigation, soil remediation, composting, seasonal planting, trouble-shooting, networking, harvesting, community marketing, program development and more.  Between classes, participants will implement the learned material at their location.   Upon returning to the class, participants are encouraged to share and overcome challenges by assisting one another.  In addition, participants will be connected after the program through the community garden resource network, an online community for garden support.

Curriculum Every other Saturday starting at 3pm!
