This series if FREE, but registration is required.

Any produce that is ready to be harvested can be taken home by the household maintaining the garden that week. Additional produce can be shared with other households or dropped off at the Big Lake Food Shelf.
  • Seeds will be provided by the Master Gardeners and City of Big Lake. The City will have some gardening tools available, but it is recommended that you bring gardening gloves and trowels if you have access to them.

Workshops start at 6: 30 p.m. on the 2nd Tuesday of the month with a virtual kick-off meeting on April  27 @ 6:30 p.m. via Zoom. Workshop dates are as follows: May 11, June 8, July 13, August 10, September 14 and October 12.
