Are you looking for high altitude gardening tips and fresh garden produce cooking ideas from your summer harvest? You can find them at the Flagstaff’s Seed to Table program. This series, held every other Tuesday evening, teaches about gardening, nutrition from garden produce, and food safety.
The free workshops, presented by the University of Arizona College of Agriculture & LIfe Sciences are held from 5-7pm at the college’s Coconino County Cooperative Extension (2304 North Third Street).
These workshops provide interactive instruction, food demonstrations, taste tests, and gardening information at our Bus Stop demonstration garden.

Upcoming classes are:
