The Growing Gardeners Workshop Series is a collaboration between The Big Garden and City Sprouts in Omaha, Nebraska. We offer four seasons of engaging, hands-on workshops that feature skills and techniques for every gardener and urban farmer: growing, cooking, preserving, and eating healthy, local food! All workshops are free or low-cost, open to all ages, and no one is turned away for inability to pay.



Urban Ag School is Omaha's first FREE in-depth series of classes that aims to equip people with all the basic skills they need to grow their own food. It is a selection of classes from the Growing Gardeners Workshop Series, currently offered by City Sprouts and The Big Garden. Urban Ag School is for everyone who has a strong desire and commitment to learn more about growing your own food. You don't need to be a current gardener, and you don't need to have special skills or knowledge to attend. Start where you are, and we will work with you to increase your skills and knowledge base. All classes are FREE and participants will receive a certificate upon completion of 12 classes. Download the booklet here.
