The WSU Snohomish County Extension Growing Groceries Education Series brings together beginning and experienced gardeners with speakers and topics focused on growing healthy food using sustainable gardening practices.
Join us starting October 6, 2021 for the first class in the Growing Groceries Education Series, classes designed to help you learn how to grow your own food.
All classes are on Wednesday evenings from 7:00pm – 9:00pm online using the Zoom platform. Have to miss one? No problem! A link to an online recording will be sent to everyone registered along with links to resources and more!
With an overall focus on limited space, resources, and the combined challenges of western Washington weather and soils, this series of speakers and topics will help beginners, as well as long time gardeners, learn more about growing food using healthy and sustainable practices.
