Organizing 2019 Classes/Events

 

Hello Home Grown members and not yet members!
As Home Grown is preparing and organizing our 2019 classes/events, we hope your new year is off to a fabulous start. I know all this snow we are getting is really helping the trees and plants and it is a good time to plan out your gardens and for us to plan out the Home Grown New Mexico classes. We are excited about several new things on the horizon we want to share with you.

We are gearing up for an exceptional season of supporting our members with gardening, preservation, fermentation and cooking classes to help us all create a more sustainable life for ourselves whether you live in the city or countryside.

We will start our season with the Seed Exchange which will take place at Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association from 4-6 pm on March 13th.

We are tightening up our class info right now and will put out the actual classes/schedule in a few days. Stay tune for the classes to be released in early March.
