Growing Groceries Program

Until 2018, the King County Growing Groceries Program centered on advising gardeners in community gardens in the county.

In the fall of 2018, an educational series entitled Growing Groceries was launched, with classes held at The Grange in Issaquah. The focus of this series has been on teaching our gardening community how to grow healthy food using research-based sustainable gardening practices.

In October 2019, the series was continued with the 2019-2020 Growing Groceries series offered in two locations in King County, on the Eastside at The Grange in Issaquah and on Seattle’s Beacon Hill at El Centro de la Raza. Since April 2020, Growing Groceries classes have been held online using the Zoom platform.

These classes, designed for beginning and intermediate vegetable gardeners, have helped over 500 home gardeners enhance their home vegetable gardening skills.

The Growing Groceries educational series is now online, available on the Zoom platform as of 2020. Find details about the current classes on our Growing Groceries education web page.
