Free DPR Urban Grower Webinar Course

Capitol Hill has more colorful community gardens than any other neighborhood in the city. Three gardens are part of the DC Department of Parks and Recreation urban gardening program.

During this time of social distancing the DC Parks and Rec Urban Grower Course has been converted into an all online webinar course called the DPR Urban Grower Webinar Course. The DPR Urban Grower Webinar Course is a free online course focused on teaching people all the basics of gardening from building a home garden to cooking and preserving your harvest.

The course is twelve 2-hour classes and meets virtually twice a week for 6 weeks every Tuesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. from March 24 to April 30. Each class will be recorded as well for those that can’t attend the scheduled time, although you are encouraged to attend each webinar so you can ask questions and participate in video conference discussions.
