Alongside the teaching that happens as we work and eat together, we occasionally offer educational workshops, tours, and other events. Our Garden Coordinator has taught workshops on site, as well as at regional conferences. If you are interested in an educational tour, please email Matt Gundlach.
Here are some upcoming events this year:
The Ecological Garden(er): Date TBA
This year, we will be hosting a workshop at Beatitude Gardens on ecological principles for creating gardens that work with nature, rather than against it. Matt will cover topics such as plants for many purposes, beneficial insects, garden design, and soil biology.

Saturday, April 21
Vigil: 10 - 10:40 am
