Workshop Series + Urban Ag School
The Growing Gardeners Workshop Series is an educational resource hosted by City Sprouts to folks of all ages. Our purpose is to offer four seasons of hands-on workshops and virtual webinars featuring skills and techniques for every gardener and urban farmer. Topics include gardening, urban farming, cooking, and food preservation. All workshops are low-cost and accessible, for all-ages, and no one will be turned away for inability to pay. Subscribe to get the latest Growing Gardeners updates!
Urban Ag School
Urban Ag School is Omaha's first low-cost and in-depth series of classes that aims to equip people with all the basic skills they need to grow their own food. Urban Ag School is for everyone who has a strong desire and commitment to learning more about growing your own food. You don't need to be a current gardener, and you don't need to have special skills or knowledge to attend. Start where you are, and we will work with you to increase your skills and knowledge base.
Herbal Medicine Cabinet
The Herbal Medicine Cabinet is a series of classes that teach you how to utilize different types of herbs as medicinal remedies. We cover everything from making your own tinctures to creating your own salves and body care products. Join these classes to expand your knowledge of herbalism and to start building your own apothecary.
Culinary & Nutrition
Join our cooking and nutrition workshops to learn how to turn all the beautiful raw produce you grow into healthy and delicious foods! We cover preserving methods under this track such as water bath and pressure canning, fermentation, and how to make your own hot sauces. We also have occasional certified nutritionists teach classes on how to get the most nutrition out of your meals.
Lifestyle & Community
Our lifestyle and community events are just a way to say ‘everything else we haven’t covered.’ City Sprouts hosts a lot of fun and free community events throughout the year, and we also teach various craft workshops like painting Pysanka eggs for Easter or decorating your own evergreen wreaths during the holiday months.
In 2019, instructors Alex O'Hanlon and Cait Caughey started an Annual Seed School as part of the Urban Ag School. This free, 2-day intensive class teaches participants the history of seed saving, how to grow for seed, trait selection, and so much more. Curriculum from Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance is used as the basis of the workshop.
We love having guest teachers from our community lead workshops! Are you knowledgable about a subject that you'd like to share in a workshop? Reach out to our Education Manager and explain what skills you'd like to share.
