Workshops and Webinars
Come and gain hands-on skills through our series of organic gardening workshops! After two years of keeping our community safe by offering virtual gardening education, we have now returned to offering to in-person workshops in our new teaching gardens.
In addition to offering educational workshops and webinars, we will enter our third year of hosting virtual "Garden Coaching" sessions about once a month on Wednesdays from March through August via Facebook Live. Please join us for timely garden advice and live garden Q&A on Wednesdays from 4:30-5:00 on the Wasatch Community Gardens' Facebook page. Follow our page for updates on the Facebook Live schedule.
Class sizes in our in-person workshops will be kept small for the foreseeable future for COVID safety reasons, so we will offer the same class at multiple times to accommodate as many students as we can.
PLEASE READ: During medium and high community transmission levels, COVID safety precautions will be in place for all our in-person classes. All participants will be required to adhere to the same COVID safety procedures as our staff. Regardless of vaccination status, students will be expected to stay socially distanced and to bring a mask and be prepared to wear it when staff and/or instructors indicate that masks are required. No exceptions. Our virtual webinars, videos, and Facebook Live events are great alternatives for individuals wanting to learn about organic vegetable gardening but not wanting to mask or socially distance in our teaching gardens. During low community transmission levels, masks are optional both indoors and outdoors.
We offer a limited number of reduced-tuition scholarships for low-income individuals. See below for the online application.
A limited number of reduced tuition scholarships are available to low-income individuals for each of our workshops and webinars unless noted otherwise in the description. We encourage low-income community members and students to take advantage of these scholarships. Ensuring that our garden education is affordable and available for all members of the community is important to our organization!
Quotes From our Students!
“Prior to the classes my gardening success was mostly luck not knowledge; classes reinforced so things I was already doing and gave me actual knowledge to succeed.”
“Most of my confidence comes from techniques that I learned in the classes. There are times when I try everything that I know and I am still not successful at gardening. That is when I want to learn more and take more workshops”
“Wonderful people; beautiful grounds; exciting courses offered; lots of love and graciousness evident around the place. Thanks to WCG.”
“I'm very thankful for your strong presence in the community. Although we don't attend as many workshops as we like, I feel supported in our gardening interests and endeavors knowing that enthusiastic and knowledgeable instruction is easily available. Thank you!”
“Marybeth and the team at Wasatch Community gardens are outstanding! I have enjoyed every workshop that I have taken and I have learned so many skills and techniques. Thank you for having a variety of classes and offering them frequently”
“Marybeth is such an amazing educator!! I would come to a class just because she gets me excited about gardening more than anything else!”
“The garlic workshop I attended was awesome. Learned a lot and was excited to plant the garlic given right after the class. The instructor was excellent and hands on learning in the field was very effective and thank you for the take home garlic to plant at home!”
“I really began to grow the majority of my plants from seed after taking the “Flower Seed Starting Indoors” workshop. I learned so much of what was needed to start seeds indoors, such as the necessities like lights, etc. Since then, I also incorporate lots of flowers in my veggie beds to attract more beneficial and plus, it looks pretty. Overall, I have always taken away some new piece of knowledge from every workshop I have attended”
