Joy of Harvest

Farm to Fork

We believe that when you can feed yourself, you free yourself. In our Farm to Fork programs we provide nutrition and garden training in one-on-one and group settings. We host hands on classes, food demonstrations and offer monthly produce boxes packed with locally grown veggies and recipes as the seasons allow.

 

May the Garden Feed the Soul.
