Garden School #1: From Grocery List to Garden Plan

Garden School #1:  From Grocery List to Garden Plan

Brand new to growing food?  Already gardening but want to improve your techniques?  Have lots of experience and willing to share?  Join us!

New and experienced gardeners are invited to join The Resilience Hub for its first season of "Garden School" modules in Portland.  Each of the 12 modules will focus on a specific gardening topic in easily accessible and "digestible" chunks.  Together we willcreate a shared space for newer, intermediate as well as experienced gardeners to learn and share.  Sessions happen every two weeks starting in March; attend one, some or all!

Some modules will be facilitated by experienced Resilience Hub folks, while others will feature a guest lecturer/facilitator.  This course is grounded in organic methods and the use of good permaculture design skills.

-------

All sessions will convene at 6:30 pm so that participants can share potluck food (bring a dish/beverage to share and your own potluck kit consisting of bowl/utensils/cup/napkin).  Main topic will commence at 7:00 pm and run for 60-90 minutes depending on discussion time.  Handouts will be provided.

Space is limited to ensure a quality learning experience!

Garden School #1:  From Grocery List to Garden Plan

Module #1: will focus on setting goals and planning what to grow, starting with what you really will eat!  Pre-work: think about the vegetables and fruits that you already purchase and/or consumer throughout the year and see if you can estimate how many pounds your household consumes of the top 10-12 types of produce.  Planning worksheets and templates will be provided.  From this data, each of you will create growing and planting plans including number and types of plants.


If you would like to attend all 12 modules and receive a Resilience Hub Certificate of Completion, please contact Lisa Fernandes (via the organizer icon at left) to arrange a one-time discounted payment to cover the entire series.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
