A Partnership between PASA’s Good Food Neighborhood Program and Dickinson College Farm.
Due to an enthusiastic response
to the workshop series, we will be requiring RSVP’s for ALL workshops
and we will open registration for each workshop immediately following
the preceding workshop. This will ensure that all gardeners have a fair chance to sign up for future workshops!

Dickinson College Farm is one of four Pennsylvania locations hosting
the workshops through PASA’s Sustainability Schools program, which
centers on homesteading, homemaking and backyard conservation workshops
for consumers interested in living more sustainably. The other locations
are Greener Partners (Collegeville, PA), the Spring Creek Homesteading Fund (State College, PA), and The Home Grown Institute (Philadelphia, PA).
“We are excited for this partnership and look forward to empowering
and inspiring others to grow food and help build a foundation for
community-based education,” says Jenn Halpin, Dickinson College Farm
director. “Farm-based educational programs provide hands-on learning and
a means to exchange information that will benefit gardeners and food
lovers alike,” she says.
Each Sustainability Series Workshop will start at 2:00pm at the Dickinson College Farm, located at 553 Park Drive, Boiling Springs, PA 17007. Held on the last Saturday of each month, the two-hour workshops offer gardeners of all skill levels tips and strategies to maximize production and enjoyment from home and community gardening.
Please be sure to dress for the weather! Workshops will be held outdoors and in rustic indoor facilities.
