To Grow Box is our garden education program for low-income community members. Income eligible families and individuals attend weekly garden and cooking education classes at the SAGE garden to learn how to grow and prepare fresh, healthy food.
All participants build their own container gardens to take home during To Grow Box. The classes cover soil fertility, garden design, seed starting and planting calendars, pest management, fruit and veggie varieties, garden troubleshooting, and cooking with fresh produce. At the end of each class, all participants take home a share of fresh produce from the garden and a recipe for the week.
