Growing Power hosts weekend “From the Ground Up” workshops. These workshops, attended by people from all over the world, provide hands-on training in all aspects of developing and maintaining a sustainable community food system. Participants can take part in several breakout sessions that cover topics such as: hoop house construction, mushroom cultivation, aquaponics, sprout production, vermi-composting, beekeeping, and community project planning. Coinciding with these workshops, Growing Power offers a Commercial Urban Agriculture course through which participants attend workshops for five consecutive months, concluding in June with a graduation. This course provides them with intensive hands-on training supplemented with classroom instruction that focuses on building the individuals skills in preparation for operating their own farming venture.
