Until 2018, the King County Growing Groceries Program centered on advising gardeners in community gardens in the county.

In the fall of 2018, an educational series entitled Growing Groceries 2.0 was launched. The focus of this series is on teaching our gardening community how to grow healthy food using research-based sustainable gardening practices.

In October 2019, the series was continued with the 2019-2020 Growing Groceries series offered in two locations in the County, on the Eastside at The Grange in Issaquah and on Seattle’s Beacon Hill at El Centro de la Raza (beside the Cesar Chavez Demonstration Garden and next to a Link light rail station). These classes are designed for beginning and intermediate vegetable gardeners.

Online Classes.The Beacon Hill and Issaquah Growing Groceries classes have been cancelled, but there will be online access for the April classes using the Zoom meetings platform. Information regarding May classes will be sent at the end of April.

Persons who have already registered for the in-person classes on the Eastside at The Grange in Issaquah or on Beacon Hill in Seattle will be automatically registered for these online classes. Registration for the April classes (April 1: Tomatoes, rescheduled from March 25; and April 15: Bugs, Weeds & Watering) will be available here this weekend. Details about accessing the Zoom classes will be sent to each registrant in advance of the class.
