Second annual event!

Love to Grow is intended to educate the public about edible and native plants; where to source them, how to plant and care for them, and the impacts of ecologically-minded land care. The educational opportunities during the event will aim to enrich each individual’s interest in gardening and edible landscaping. Additionally, enjoy socializing with regional hobbyists and experts alike.

The venue is located one block from our demonstration site, Prairie Ally, and offers a warm and welcoming setting.

We will be hosting three educational speakers followed by a social hour.

  • Robin Buterbaugh, SDSU Native Plant Initiative Graduate Research Assistant and Ecdysis Foundation Lab Manager on "Permaculture Food Forests as Modern Day Victory Gardens"
  • Sam Kezar of Aspen Arboriculture Solutions on "Maximizing Urban Tree Health for Optimum Production"
  • Dan and Megan Eisenvos of IronFox Farm on "Engaging Kids in the Garden"

The event will also host several vendor tables with locally produced goods and educational materials.

A beautiful charcuterie spread featuring locally grown ingredients along with coffee and tea is included in the ticket price. Take 16 beverages will be available for purchase.

We still have sponsorship opportunities available! Please email info [at] for more information.
