History of the Program
Since 2016, we have been encouraging new gardeners to try their hand at growing their own food. Each spring we distribute Garden In a Box kits that include seedlings, seeds, instructions, and other tools to help gardeners grow vegetables in a 4×4 plot. Throughout the year we offer an educational workshop series providing information about gardening. Topics covered have included DIY Pest Reduction, Winterizing Your Garden, and Starting Seeds Indoors.
Please follow us on Facebook to find out more about our Garden in a Box giveaway and educational events.
Past events have covered topics including:
- DIY Pest Reduction Workshop (DIY Pest Reduction worksheet)
- Winterizing Your Garden (Winterizing Your Garden worksheet)
- Cold Weather Crops/Seed Starting (Starting Seeds Indoors worksheet)
We have also produced an educational series in the Greater Park Hill Newspaper:
