Low-cost gardening can help reduce your monthly food budget.

Alliance partners with Inter-Faith Food Shuttle on Seed to Supper, a five-week gardening course for beginners.

How it works:

  • 5-week course taught by three different Master Gardener volunteers
  • First hour of each class learning basics and essentials; second hour hands-on work in Alliance Community Garden
  • Learn the basics of
    • Pest management
    • Diseases
    • Weed control
    • How to harvest
    • Preserving techniques
    • Creating a garden map
  • Each participant that attends four of the five classes is eligible to apply to receive the installment of a backyard garden worth 150 dollars! 

What are the benefits:

  • Fruits and vegetables from your own garden are higher in nutrients than those that have traveled to get to the grocery store
  • Reduce the amount of pesticides on the fruits and vegetables you eat
  • Save money 
  • Increases physical activity
  • Deeper connection with your food and sense of appreciation for what you grow
