Thanks for your interest in the Civic Garden Center’s Community Garden Development Training (CGDT). 

Community Gardens Development Training (CGDT) provides community residents with the basic leadership training, horticulture education and technical assistance to operate a community garden sustainably. The classes are free of charge and designed for people interested in starting a community garden or strengthening their already existing one. Those interested in just wanting to learn more about these efforts are also welcome. From civic engagement to building raised beds, from fundraising to tomato varieties, learn them here!

CGDT is sponsored in part by the Meshewa Farm Foundation. Click here to see the current syllabus. Ready to sign-up? Click here to complete an application. Have questions? Contact
