We aim to provide a curriculum of educational classes for all people, and seek both professional growers and home gardeners to be our educators. We believe that developing relationships with mentors is central to our philosophy of establishing lifelong learning, and that these relationships build trust between individuals and also develop a support system for people that goes beyond growing food to address the health of our community as a whole.

If you wish to volunteer to share your knowledge on a topic listed among below seasonal topics, or suggest an additional topic for a class, please click HERE to let us know. After reviewing the information, LCF’s Director of Education will contact you to work out the details.

Thank you!
