Upcoming Workshop Schedule

Thank you for your interest in our workshops!  Please note: we are offering limited workshops in 2014 and instead, refer you to our colleagues at Project Grow, the Ypsilanti Public Library, and Abundant Michigan (to name a few) for your workshop needs.  If you are interested in "learning by doing", consider volunteering on our urban farm (email: to set up a time).  Additionally, join our Growing Gardens Membership and come to "OPEN YARD" on Fridays from 3-7pm, where you can talk and ask questions of a Master Gardener, one-on-one!
