Community Gardening

Meeting timeCRNSession
Tuesdays and Thursdays 3:40PM-5:35PM 45806First

Did your family have a food garden? Are you trying to live more sustainably? Gardening is a form of exercise, and is as restful for the mind as meditation. Food gardening saves money, enhances local ecosystems, promotes our local economies, and helps us eat more healthily. Come learn what food gardening is all about by experiencing it first hand with an intensive garden plot in the UT Institute of Agriculture Kitchen Garden. Polish your cooking skills at the UT Culinary Institute as we learn to prepare a delicious meal using fresh vegetables and herbs. Contribute to the local community through service projects at the Beardsley Community Farm and the Pond Gap Community Garden.
