Garden Gateway is a program that facilitates the learning and sharing of food growing skills, healthy cooking and drinking, and knowledge about the connections between what we eat and our health. The free 10 week series takes place (mostly) on the second Saturday of each month September to June from 9 am to Noon. Check the calendar to confirm workshop dates. The first half of the workshop focuses on natural garden methods, and the second half on healthy food preparation. Gardening activities are hands on and recipe demos are based on every day easy to grow and/or access ingredients.
CSU partners with UC Coop Extension to offer the Garden Gateway Home Gardening certificate program. Individuals who participate in a pre determined number of Garden Gateway workshops between September and June are eligible to become certified and possibly help to deliver Garden Gateway workshops in the future! Upon successful completion of this program ongoing participants can become a Garden Gateway Mentor; helping to deliver GG sessions.
