Food Growing Workshop at The Merc

Posted on April 11, 2023 by Alicia Alferman

On Saturday, April 1st, Cultivate KC hosted a Food Growing Workshop in partnership with Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas and Kansas City Community Gardens. Located at The Merc Co+op in Kansas City, Kansas, participants learned about best practices for container gardening and growing food in their homes, taking home several different plants including cabbages, kales, and lettuces, as well as various herbs. Attendees also received potting soil and containers for their plants.

This workshop was the first in what will hopefully be a series of free workshops throughout the spring and summer. Be on the lookout for event signups at farmers markets, grocery stores, community centers, and on our social media! 

Ben Kuhn, University of Kansas MSW Intern, co-organized the workshop and wrote the wrap-up post. Thanks, Ben, for all your hard work this academic year!
