Seed To Supper

Join Us and Teach Folks How to Grow Their Own Food

Do you…

  • Have a passion for learning more about growing food?
  • Enjoy food- gardening, cooking, eating?
  • Want to discover connections between your community and growing food?
  • Wish to share what you learn with others and put it into action?

If so, you might be interested in taking part in Tioga County’s Seed to Supper Facilitator Training with others who share the same interest!

What is Tioga Seed to Supper? Cornell University students will lead five classes about vegetable gardening and how it can bring people together in Tioga County.

What for? You will become a Seed to Supper Facilitator, meaning you will be able to guide your fellow community members to think about: How might growing food help our community? You will be expected to help lead classes later in the spring for community members who want to learn how to grow some of their own food. It is a great way to do something positive for our community.

Who can participate? Community members from across Tioga County, with any amount of garden experience and passion for food. We will pair you with a knowledgeable Master Gardener and give you some gardening training. We are seeking about 10 community members to participate.

When will the classes be? Five Mondays, February 27- March 27, 2017, 2-4pm

Where? Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tioga (CCE Tioga), 56 Main Street, Owego, NY 14850

What accommodations are there? If you have problems with getting to classes, or need childcare assistance, please let us know. There is no cost for this facilitator training.
