Growing your own food is a delicious way to improve your diet, but gardening can seem intimidating, confusing and expensive. Seed to Supper is a free class to help families grow their own food and stretch their grocery budget.
Seed to Supper is a beginning gardening course that gives adult gardeners the tools they need to successfully grow a portion of their own food on a limited budget. It is offered at 10 locations in Marion and Polk counties beginning in March. Classes will be offered in both English and Spanish.
The 12-hour course is offered in partnership among Marion-Polk Food Share, Salem-Keizer Education Foundation and Marion County Master Gardeners. Registration priority will be given to families living on $1,945 a month or less.
Some Seed to Supper sites will provide meals and child care. Everyone who completes the course will receive a voucher for a free gardening plot at a community garden as well as free seed packets and starter plants.
