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 class will take place outdoors and include a lecture, group discussion, and a garden tour. Please be prepared to reflect and/or share your favorite or formative food memories and traditions. Class size is limited to about 15 people, and we will be following current public health recommendations.

*This workshop is part of an ongoing partnership in educational offerings with Tilth Alliance and Beacon Food Forest. The goal of these sessions is to explore climate solutions, permaculture-themed ideas, and growing practices that are creative and relevant in our urban communities.
