Growing Groceries

In partnership with WSU Snohomish County Master Gardeners, the Growing Groceries program brings beginning and experienced gardeners together with speakers and topics focused on growing healthy food using sustainable gardening practices.

No matter if you only have a tiny apartment deck, small garden space, or plenty of acreage you can grow fresh, healthy food in a healthier, more environmentally friendly way.

Developed over the last decade, our program goal is to increase community access to fresh, healthy food by teaching the latest research-based techniques for growing food.
