Monthly classes teaching NYC residents how to start a home garden and grow their own fruits and vegetables. Topics include: growing natives, using natural fertilizers, pruning, companion planting and harvesting.

Classes run Spring through Fall; classes will start in April 2024.


This year, 2024, we will focus on Monarch Butterflies, raising them, how to encourage egg laying and how to encourage their ongoing survival. We will host workshops to bring attention to the importance of attracting Monarch Butterflies, Bees, Hummingbirds and other pollinators to one’s garden and how to naturally develop your garden.
