Do you want to get your hands dirty? Learn how to garden this Spring!
This 6-part workshop series is designed after our renowned Get Up! training program and will teach you everything you need to know to grow food in your own backyard.
San Francisco's unique climate is perfectly suited for year-round vegetable gardening. While the rest of the country is blanketed by snow and freezing temperatures, we can grow tender greens, big brassicas and quick-producing radishes.
Growing your own food is a creative, satisfying and thoughtful activity and this class will give you all the skills you need to have a bountiful backyard space. Our classes are hands on, engaging and informative and will leave you with the necessary tools you need for success.
Take the classes individually, or sign up here for all 6 and receive a 20% discount! Treat yourself to a delicious, organic and edible gardening crash course this Spring!
DIG IN! SERIES THIS SPRING
What are my transport/parking options getting to the garden?
There is available street parking, though be advised it can be challenging on weekends. Many buses and trains stop nearby, making public transportation a great option! The 44 O'Shaughnessy, 6 Parnassus, N Judah and other lines all stop nearby.
What should I bring to the workshop?
Classes are held outside in our teaching garden. We recommend bringing a hat & sunscreen, comfortable closed toed shoes and lots of layers. You may want to bring a notebook to take notes on what you are learning and we recommend bringing a full water bottle as well.
Do you cancel classes due to rain?
We try our best not to cancel classes, but if the weather report suggests it is very likely it will be pouring rain during the class time, we will cancel the class that morning. We do hold classes in drizzling weather, and recommend students dress appropriately.
