Growing:

Community potlucks, workshops, and a collective group of Farmshed members

Farmshed At the Greenhouse Project

Sustainable Farmer Course is taught every year by an emerging network of farmers working to help increase the number of sustainable farms in Central Wisconsin growing food for local markets.

2014 Course – Friday through Sunday, March 14-16.  See the event page for all the details and the link to register.

Community Potluck Series is a monthly themed dinner that invites community members to join each other for great food and conversation.  Bring a small dish to pass and meet others with similar interests!

These are held every second Tuesday of the month from 6:30 to 8:00pm at The Greenhouse Project.  Visit the monthly event calendar for event themes and details or check out this 2015 potluck postcard!

Growing Community Workshop Series lends educational opportunities to a variety of community members, from the novice gardener or cook to the more experienced farmer, offering something for everyone.  Check the monthly calendar for upcoming workshops.

Growing Collective is a group of Stevens Point area gardeners who organized to take on the spring growing challenge together.  The collective, started in 2013, is now over 30 members strong. The group is made up of both first-time and experienced home gardeners, along with several community groups including Central Wisconsin Environmental Station (CWES), UW-Extension’s Giving Gardens, and Tomorrow River School District.

The collective grows vegetable starts from seed, including heirloom, organic and unusual selections of tomatoes, peppers, herbs, and many more. Each member creates a plant order for themselves and also makes a commitment to help care for the up to 2000 plants that will be part of the group’s plant sale with proceeds going to support awareness and renovations of Farmshed’s Greenhouse Project.  The plant sale will be held annually in May on Memorial Day Weekend, here at 1220 Briggs Court, in Stevens Point.  All information can be found on our calendar.
