PROGRAM HIGHLIGHT

Seed-to-Supper image    Food Roots Offers Free 5-Week Garden Classes

Seed to Supper is a program designed by Oregon Food Bank and Oregon State University Extension Service and brought to Tillamook County by Food Roots.

Seed to Supper is a free, comprehensive, 5-week beginning gardening course that gives novice, adult gardeners the tools they need to successfully grow a portion of their own food on a limited budget. Brought to Tillamook County by Food Roots, Seed to Supper is a joint effort of Oregon Food Bank (OFB) and the Oregon State University Extension Service. The course is open to adult participants, with first priority given to those living on a low income (defined as $1,945 per month or less.) Those who are not low income will be given second priority, enrolled as space permits. Participants are asked to commit to attending all five classes, which run once a week and last 90 minutes to two hours.

As a participant, you’ll learn low-cost ways to build healthy soil, plan your growing space, choose your crops, care for your growing garden, and harvest your bounty. Participants receive a free gardening book and certificate of completion, as well as seeds, plant starts, and other goodies as available.
