Our Workshops

Valley Verde offers monthly workshops throughout the year to help the gardeners deal with various gardening challenges and share best practices. In class workshops, hands on training and do it yourself methodology are incorporated.

Training includes also cooking demos and sharing information on nutrition and the health benefits of a diet that’s heavy in fresh vegetables. Class meals offered by Valley Verde are created to emphasize the growing epidemic of diabetes and high blood pressure in our communities and with VV participants. Ingredients used to prepare meals are based with organic, local seasonal vegetables and the least cost and time effective. Recipes are distributed to each participant at the end of each workshop.
