“Eat Your Garden” Explores Sustainable Gardening Practices
Plots are available at the New Start Community Garden and the Burien Community Garden.
Participants learn about healthy garden environments that are beneficial to humans and wildlife, and experience hands-on activities and techniques for sustainable gardening. Our Sustainable Gardening workshops include topics like incorporating edible natives in your veggie and flower garden, using organic fertilizers, composting and worm bins. Participants have the opportunity to volunteer at local community gardens. They learn skills and principles that are relevant and can be used throughout their lives as environmental stewards and sustainable gardeners.
The Weed Warriors non-profit is honored to serve as the fiscal sponsor for the New Start Community Garden program.
