What is the Seed to Supper Project?

A Beginner's Guide to Low Cost Vegetable Gardening

Seed to Supper is a comprehensive beginning vegetable gardening curriculum designed for adults gardening on a budget. The program has been adopted by Cornell Cooperative Extension of New York State as a shared program of Oregon Food Bank's Learning Gardens. Partners across New York, including CCE Master Gardener Volunteer Programs, are working to train volunteer Garden Educators who will then teach the Seed To Supper curriculum to interested community members. The courses highlight practical, low-cost techniques for building, planning, planting, maintaining, and celebrating the harvest of a successful vegetable garden.

The Seed to Supper project in New York State is partnering with New York Food Banks and Extension offices to support more food secure communities; increasing access to garden produce to provide healthier food choices.

The Seed to Supper curriculum focuses on low budget strategies and provides a springboard for making connections among community program partners (Host Agencies) and between Program Participants. The beginning gardening course gives novice gardeners the tools they need to connect with others in community, grow in confidence and successfully grow a portion of their own food on a limited budget.

CCE is pleased to announce we were awarded a Seed to Supper mini-grant!

We are thrilled to be partnering with St. Marks & St. Johns Episcopal Church through their E.D.E.N. Gardens and with Summerville Presbyterian Church in Irondequoit!
