Seed to Supper Classes Help Families Grow Their Own Food

Growing your own food is a delicious, cost effective way to improve your diet. We know that gardening may be intimidating, confusing and expensive. Seed to Supper is a free 6 week course to help families learn how to grow their own food and stretch their grocery budget.

Seed to Supper is a series of 2-hour beginner gardening classes that give adults the tools they need to successfully grow produce while on a limited budget. Classes are offered in both English and Spanish.

The 12-hour course is presented by Marion Polk Food Share in partnership with Marion County Master Gardeners. Registration priority will be given to families living on a $1,945 monthly income or less.

Childcare is not provided at Seed to Supper sites, but children are welcome to attend the class along with their parents or guardians. There will be snacks provided at each site. Everyone who completes the course receives a voucher for a free gardening plot at a community garden as well as free seed packets and starter plants. Watch your garden grow!
