Food Well Alliance, the Atlanta Botanical Garden, and Park Pride are pairing up to launch a brand new series of summer workshops at community gardens across metro Atlanta. Whether you’re a novice or a gardening pro, come prepared to learn from experts who will provide hands-on teaching and demonstrations.

All workshops will feature light refreshments, opportunities to network, and instruction on the following topics:
