How to Grow Food
Each year, hundreds of gardeners learn how to grow food at City Natives. City Natives is a living example of high-yield, sustainable food gardening practices. To share these practices, City Natives hosts the ever-popular Seed, Sow & Grow workshop series, a full season of participatory workshops on topics from seed starting to fruit tree maintenance and season extension.

City Natives demonstrates a range of urban composting techniques that keep green waste out of the landfill while pleasing your neighbors.

Many of us come to the garden for healing. Each summer, City Natives hosts a series of classes on rotating topics including healthy cooking, herbal medicine, yoga and stress-reduction.
