MOVE GRASS CLASS: edible gardening for sustainability

This year we're trying something a little different! Introducing Move Grass Class, a series of classes designed to help you get stuff done. We believe that the best way to learn  is to do,  so each class includes a hands-on component. We've broken down our classes into five main areas. Scroll down to view our full class schedule, or view and register for our mini-series by clicking the on the titles below. Read about our teachers here!

 How do punchcards and registration work?
If you register for a specific class, a miniseries, or a full series all you have to do is come to class. We'll have your registration on file! If you choose one of the punchcards, that means you can attend any class you like, no matter which mini-series they belong to. If you have a five-class card, you can pick it up at the first class you attend and you'll get your first punch. After that, you can choose any four other classes--each time you'll get a punch. Once your card is full, you'll have to pay to attend any further classes. The more classes you attend, the less you will pay per class (unless you choose a miniseries). Here's the per class rate for each type of registration:

Single Class: $18 per class
5 Class Punchcard: $15 per class
10 Class Punchcard: $14 per class
Mini-Series: $13 per class
Full Series: $11 per class
