Local Foods College

Greenhouse with the side partially open so you can see inside to a row of dirt and growing plants in rows behind. Outside of greenhouse is green grass, a group of blooming daisies and a group of people sitting on the ground with an instructor standing in front of the group.

The Local Foods College is an interactive distance learning opportunity for gardeners and farmers interested in community-based food systems.
