UPDATE: All PHS public gatherings, workshops, field trips, have been halted through May 8. We are working to provide updates for this event. Be sure to check back here to learn more. 

Are you involved in a new community garden or looking to start one? Join Sally McCabe and others to learn what it takes to get a community garden started, and sustain it. This six-session course combines in-depth and hands-on gardening experience with topics such as basic horticulture, recruiting and keeping volunteers, assessing and finding resources in your neighborhood, planting and garden maintenance, land ownership/security, and forming partnerships.
