On a farm in the city, we teach the skills to grow Chinese vegetables in a community garden, backyard, or apartment balcony.
Our Sprouting Choi growing workshops invite participants to get their hands in the dirt and learn the essentials of vegetable gardening. We teach traditional, organic methods for growing choi, giving participants a chance to try every step of growing their own food, from preparing soil to harvesting greens.
