Growing Green Communities

Culturally-specific natural gardening workshops (free!)

If you are looking for our traditional spring and fall workshops, please visit our Upcoming Workshops page.

How are these workshops different? Who are they intended for? Our workshops provide free educational opportunities for those who might not otherwise attend our traditional workshops or find them accessible. Offerings might include: workshops for people whose primary language is not English, more variety in workshop dates and times, non-traditional educational settings (such as a community garden), childcare and/or family-friendly activities, and so forth.

How can we host one of these unique workshops? You can contact Brandi at Brandi@emswcd.org or (503) 935-5364 to find out what might be possible! Please note that this is a collaborative process that may take several months to plan before hosting a workshop.
