Workshops: Grown In Marin (GRIN) Workshop Series
To Benefit the Novato Community Garden
Do you remember the taste of a tomato freshly picked from the vine? How about sweet corn, cucumbers, green beans, onions, lettuces and herbs? We will be offering workshops in the new year to get you inspired to plant and grow your own food. Proceeds from the fees will be used to help build the Novato Community Garden at O’Hair Park off of Novato Blvd.
