Every person we serve has a story. BackPack Buddies kids, CJTP students, Seed to Supper graduates, all of them have an enlightening story to tell. Here is the story of Burmese refugees gardening on our Teaching Farm.
Seed to Supper is a comprehensive, 6-week beginning gardening course taught by NC State Master Gardeners. The course gives novice, adult gardeners the tools they need to successfully grow a portion of their own food on a limited budget.
