Classes

We are charging a minimum $5 fee for all classes to discourage no-shows. To register and pay the fee you follow the registration link after the class description.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, our classes will be offered on-line using a cloud-based service, WebEx. You will be sent an email containing a link that will allow you to join the online class ten minutes before the session begins. To assure that the class is not interrupted with unwanted noise, we ask that you mute your microphone until you wish to ask a question or make a comment at the end of the class. Since this is the first time we are attempting to hold classes online, we ask for your understanding and goodwill as we undertake this adventure.

No-Knead Bread and Soup Workshop

  Note:  This class is cancelled.

Learn how to bake bread and cook a delicious potato leek soup. The kitchen has a generous space for students to observe the techniques involved in making bread and during the waiting steps, cooking a potato leek soup. The bread making will involve an adaptation of a no-knead, bread-in-the-pot technique described in a November 2006 New York Times article authored by Mark Bittman. The method was developed by Jim Lahey at Sullivan Street bakery.
    The class is being offered by Marcella Trautmann and Calin Sferdean, Project Grow board members and passionate gardeners.
    The fee for the class is $20, which includes all materials and bread/soup lunch cooked by students. Enrollment is limited at 15. Register here.



Tips on SIPS

SIPS (self-irrigating potting systems) are becoming more popular everyday, in large part due to the evolution of the water conservation movement/mentality. Modernization and availability of tools and fittings make these systems a tangible reality for the average Joe/Josephine.

Advanced Master Gardener and Master Composter: Jesse Raudenbush, explores the finer details of how SIPS work AND completes the build process of a “Rain-gutter Grow system” (with class participation). The perfect setup for patios or other limited spaces where container pots are the only option.. Ties right into your rain barrel!

Though this is partly hands-on, students should be prepared to take notes or photo document. 
Class size is limited. Registration is $5.   Please register here.    Minimum age 12 (accompanied by adult).
