Seasonal Workshops

ACSA's Food Security department runs regular workshops throughout the year from April till November. These workshops are currently offered on a virtual basis. Workshops are led by staff and/or peers on a variety of topics selected by the community, including:


  • Balcony/Container Gardening
  • Starting a Garden From Scratch
  • Soil Health
  • Composting
  • All About Mushrooms
  • Harvesting
  • Seed Saving
  • Food Preservation


Workshops are a great opportunity to learn more about gardening and meet community members with similar interests. Get in touch with us to watch past workshop sessions, lead a workshop, or to sign up!
