IMG_20150521_174755Container Garden Program The Container Garden Program is designed to teach community members and families how to connect back to the food they are eating by growing it themselves. The workshops are free, we provide all the materials to start and maintain your own garden at home in pots. Pots allow for easy care and are great because of their ability to be mobile and they take up little space. Caring and nurturing a plant, watching it grow and eventually preparing it for dinner is one of the most fulfilling things one can be a part of and it is such a great activity for families to do together.
