City of Harrisburg – Community Gardening Education

Are you interested in growing your own produce, but aren’t sure where to start? Or maybe you’ve been gardening for many years and want to learn something new. Join us this summer for Gardening Basics! This class is open to all age groups, is well suited for families, and includes classroom instruction and hands-on application.

The City of Harrisburg provides and maintains parks and open space throughout the community as well as a wide range of recreation opportunities for citizens of all ages. Gardening enriches the connection communities have with fresh, healthy food.

This program aims to:
Provide opportunities for hands-on learning, inquiry, observation, and experimentation

Motivating residents to eat and love fruits and vegetables grown locally

Promote physical activity and quality outdoor experiences

Participants will have the opportunity to plant, grow, and maintain crops throughout the South Dakota growing season under the guidance of local master gardeners. All materials, to include plants and equipment, will be provided. We will share plots at Grand Gardens, the community gardening space.
