Grow Your Own Organic Garden 2020 Resources


Grow Your Own Organic Garden has been part of MOFGA’s annual event line-up since 1990, when we began this statewide class on growing organically in your own backyard.  We’ll miss seeing our students in person this year, but are glad to be able to bring you these resources in a digital format.

Here is a webinar recording of the class posted on our YouTube channel that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home.
