Public Workshops and Other Events
Each year the Friends of the UCSC Farm and Garden work with the staff of the Center for Agroecology & Sustainable Food Systems (CASFS) to develop a slate of fruit tree, gardening, and other "how-to" workshops for the community. These workshops range from 3-hour classes to more "intensive" day-long and multi-day classes offered at the UCSC Farm and Alan Chadwick Garden on the UC Santa Cruz campus.
Workshops are geared to both beginning and more advanced gardeners. Friends of the Farm and Garden members and UCSC students pay a reduced fee for workshops. Save money and help us better plan for appropriate levels of staffing and materials by pre-registering for workshops. See the Events page for a 2014 schedule and details.
CASFS also hosts free community seed exchanges three times a year offered through the Demeter Seed Library and the Food Systems Working Group. Community members are also welcome to take part in Food System Learning Journeys offered during the academic year through the Office of Physical Education and Recreation Services (OPERS).
Other annual events hosted by the Center and cosponsors include the Spring and Fall Plant Sales, Strawberry and Justice Festival, and Fall Harvest Festival. For details on upcoming workshops, seed exchanges, Food System Learning Journeys, and other events, see the Center Calendar.
