NeighborImpact and the High Desert Food & Farm Alliance offers Seed to Supper Course

NeighborImpact’s Emergency Food Assistance Program has partnered with the High Desert Food & Farm Alliance to offer Seed to Supper, a free comprehensive 4-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.

“We are excited to offer this free program to area residents interested in getting their hands dirty and learning how to garden,” says Laurie Purcell, Food Program Specialist at NeighborImpact. “The High Desert Food & Farm Alliance has been a terrific partner and we encourage Seed to Supper participants to then volunteer in NeighborImpact’s own demo garden. Garden proceeds go directly to our food partners to help provide fresh vegetables to our neighbors in need.”

Skills taught through this program include soil assessment, mulching, plant spacing, choosing vegetables, building row covers, and saving seeds. Participants will receive a Seed to Supper Beginner Gardening Book, space to grow at the NeighborImpact Demo Garden where food will be grown for the Central Oregon food pantry community, seeds, training and dirty hands!
