LEARN AND EARN WORKSHOPS
Learn and Earn workshops are hands-on lessons about a select GRP garden resource paired with some farm work that practices using that resource. Eligible gardens will take limited resources home.
The Sweet Potato Learn and Earn is on Monday, June 4th, 6-8PM at Broadstreet Community Garden, 12065 Broadstreet east of Livernois south of Davison. This heat loving crop is fun to grow and one plant can yield pounds of sweet potatoes. Come out for a short lesson on growing great sweet potatoes, help plant a few at the garden and walk away with some to plant in your own.
