Growing Groceries Education Series
The WSU Snohomish County Extension Growing Groceries Education Series brings beginning and experienced gardeners together with speakers and topics focused on growing healthy food using sustainable gardening practices.
No matter if you only have a tiny apartment deck, small garden space, or plenty of acreage you can grow fresh, healthy food in a healthier, more environmentally friendly way.
Developed over the last several years, the program's goal is to increase our communities' access to fresh, healthy food by teaching the latest research-based techniques for growing food.
