Every gardener worth their salt knows one simple fact:  each season in the garden will teach you something new, if you pay attention.

No matter how experienced, or how long you’ve been growing food, a good gardener is always learning new tips, tricks, and seeking solutions to new problems.

Since we are all learning together, we engage a wide variety of teachers for our classes and workshops at Central Avenue Gardens–some are local experts, some have little “book-learning” but tons of experience, some have degrees many letters long.

So how about you?

What do you grow particularly well in your garden?  What crop do you enjoy growing, researching, talking about, harvesting, or offering at your dinner table?  What tried-and-true remedies do you use for problems in your garden?  We would love to offer your knowledge to the people who attend our classes.  If you are interested in sharing your garden knowledge, contact us at


Contact us at if you would like to volunteer. We have regular work days–just bring your energy and a smile. We’ll provide the rest.
