In this winter container food gardening for beginners workshop, participants will learn how to grow food such as lettuces, kale, and mustards in a container using seeds and low-cost supplies.

We will focus on important winter food gardening tips that make it possible to enjoy fresh, healthy food from your container garden throughout the winter season.
