This class will explore the essentials of starting and maintaining a community-run garden. Topics will include the types of community gardens, how to create the project vision and values, community engagement, where and how to find land, water and irrigation considerations, garden planning, issues of sustainability, funding and organizational structure. The instructor will use Pacifica Gardens as a model to educate and inspire you to become a part of community food-growing.

Loretta O’Brien, the instructor, is the founding project director and garden manager of Pacifica Gardens. Loretta has been a backyard food-grower most of her adult life. She has training in both GROW BIOINTENSIVE mini-farming and permaculture. She can be found most Saturdays at Pacifica Gardens working alongside many dedicated garden volunteers.
