Second series of food gardening classes begins June 6

Deanna 2How to Plan Your Food Garden 1
6 to 8 p.m. at Garfield Park Lodge
334 Burton St. SE, Grand Rapids 49507

Growing food within the urban landscape presents its own challenges but yields wonderful benefits. Every household that grows its own food not only creates a healthier diet for its members (and neighbors) but also helps build an alternative to the profit-driven industrial food system that has devastated our health and the environment.

The June 6 class kicks off  OKT’s second series of four food gardening classes:

  •  June 13: How to Plan Your Food Garden 2
  •  June 20: Composting & Vermiculture
  • June 27: How to Save Seeds

All classes meet from 6 to 8 p.m. at Garfield Park Lodge, 334 Burton St. SE, 49507. They are free but donations are accepted from those not being served by OKT’s programs.
