The Communal Garden Classes

Here at the Conservatory, we believe gardening is for everyone! The monthly Communal Garden class series is a fun and free way to build skills that you can use in your own community or personal garden. Join Growing to Green Coordinator and Horticulturalist Sean McKay to learn about growing, harvesting and cooking with your favorite herbs and vegetables, how to compost, the science behind plants and so much more.

This free class series is open to all in the community and is part of larger Conservatory initiatives that build capacity, knowledge and enthusiasm for the joys of gardening. To learn more about all the ways that the Conservatory supports community gardeners, check out our Growing to Green program and discover how you can get involved!
