Seed to Supper
Seed to Supper is a comprehensive, six-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. FOOD for Lane County offers Seed to Supper in partnership with Oregon Food Bank.
Seed to Supper Garden Educator volunteers teach classes at community host sites such as emergency food pantries, public libraries, affordable housing units, schools, churches, and prisons. Classes are taught indoors in the off-season in order to prepare participants for successful gardening in the springtime. Volunteer Garden Educators may also reinforce lessons in onsite host agency gardens, if they are available.
Volunteer Garden Educators teach classes using a student course booklet and a series of engaging PowerPoint presentations. Volunteer Garden Educators should have a working knowledge of basic intensive vegetable gardening principles and should be able to answer participants’ questions. The Seed to Supper curriculum was written in collaboration with Oregon State University Extension Service, and Master Gardeners may apply Seed to Supper volunteer time toward their primary service hours.
