Are you excited for springtime gardening, but unsure how to get started?

This spring, three organizations are collaborating to bring FREE gardening workshops to Western Washington County.  The Oregon Food Bank, Dairy Creek Community Food Web, and Adelante Mujeres are sponsoring three different workshops at the Forest Grove Senior and Community Center (located at 2037 Douglas Street in Forest Grove).
