About the Growing Gardeners Workshop Series

The Growing Gardeners Workshop Series is a collaboration between City Sprouts and The Big Garden in Omaha, Nebraska. Our purpose is to offer four seasons of hands-on workshops that feature skills and techniques for every gardener and urban farmer. Workshop topics include gardening, urban farming, cooking, and food preservation. All workshops are free or low-cost, all-ages, and no one will be turned away for inability to pay.
