Many of us have rich cultural backgrounds, and we often honor those backgrounds through food preparation and sharing. But we also forget that we can grow fresh produce to help us make those important and delicious cultural dishes.

In this class we will discuss:

  • The diaspora we come from
  • Food memories and traditions that shape us
  • Cultural gardening methods and history
  • How to incorporate these foods and practices into the garden planning process

This in-person class will include lecture, group discussion, and hands-on activities. Please be prepared to reflect and/or share your favorite or formative food memories and traditions. Class size is limited to 15 people, and we will be following current public health recommendations. Please plan to wear a mask and dress for the weather.
