Growing Groceries Garden Mentor Workshop

Growing Groceries Garden Mentor Workshop

The Growing Groceries Mentor Program is a new Clark County collaborative effort focused on training and linking experienced gardeners to serve as mentors in community based garden programs.
Training will take place over 4 months with one training session per month on the following dates:

January 8, 2011 from 9 a.m to 1 p.m.
February 12, 2011 from 9 a.m to 1 p.m.
March 12, 2011 from 9 a.m to 1 p.m.
and April 9, 2011 from 9 a.m to 1 p.m.

Garden Mentors must attend all four training sessions.
Please bring a sack lunch to each training session.

The program will include training on;
site and plant selection
soils and irrigation
composting and environmental stewardship
harvesting and preserving
community organization and leadership

Growing Groceries Mentors will then volunteer with organizations such as neighborhood associations, schools, faith-based and emergency food organizations and community garden sites and serve as a technical resource and a garden champion.

This program was developed through joint efforts of Clark County Public Health, WSU Clark County Extension, and other community garden advocates.
