Public Food Gardening Classes

Grow Local offers a variety of food gardening classes that equip Central Texas residents with the knowledge they need to start and sustain organic food gardens. Classes are hosted in SFC’s Teaching Garden. Prices start at $25. All proceeds from these classes support free gardening classes for families and communities in need.

Citizen Gardener Certificate

Designed to boost gardeners’ expertise and to cultivate a culture of stewardship amongst Central Texas gardeners, Grow Local's Citizen Gardener certificate is awarded to individuals who complete at least 9.5 hours of class time and 10 hours of volunteer time at school and not-for-profit gardens. Certificate awardees receive discounts on SFC's Grow Local classes and at local nurseries and are celebrated at an annual Citizen Gardener graduation ceremony.
