Upcoming Webinars

Gardening Programs
Wednesday, April 8, 10:30-11:45 a.m. PST

One of the most common initiatives to come out of FEAST is around garden education. In this webinar we'll share examples of garden programs for children and adults in both rural and urban settings. We hope you'll walk away with some ideas that are suitable and adaptable to your own communities.

We'll be joined by Caitlin Blethen from Growing Gardens in Portland who will speak to school garden start-up, maintenance, and curriculum. We'll also hear from Rachel Suits from Cooperative Extension in Hood River. She coordinates their Master Gardener program and will talk about how communities can engage their Master Gardeners. She'll also share examples of some current programs in the Gorge and end with a few timely garden tips. Christine Hadekel at the Oregon Food Bank will talk about the Seed to Supper program, a 5-week beginning gardening course for adults on a budget. This partnership with OSU Extension has recently expanded to over 10 communities across Oregon.
