Garden Education

With topics ranging from seed starting and school gardens to healthy cooking and community composting, Boston Natural Areas Network offers more that fifty workshops each year. During the growing season, join us for skill-building trainings at City Natives, the Northampton Square Rooftop Garden, community gardens and BPS schoolyards across the city. Each winter, 30 Boston community gardeners join BNAN for Master Urban Gardener, an intensive, 6-week training. Master Urban Gardener covers everything you need to know to thrive in one of Bostonís community gardens- from vegetable gardening and composting to community organizing.
