About Seed to Supper
Seed to Supper is a comprehensive, five-part 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.
Seed to Supper Garden Educator volunteers teach classes that are held at agencies that serve low-income adults throughout Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas and Clark Counties. Seed to Supper is a joint effort of Oregon Food Bank and the Oregon State University Extension Service Master Gardener™ Program.
Classes are taught with a PowerPoint presentation and participant manual. Garden Educator volunteers should have a working knowledge of the topic and be able to answer participants' questions.
