Rainbow City Gardens (RCG) offers a variety of workshops for schools, organizations, and home consultations. Workshops can be arranged according to your needs and goals, either as single sessions or a series. We are very flexible, and are available to meet in-person or remotely. Please feel free to reach out for a free initial consultation!
Garden Design and Foodscaping Workshops
Foodscaping means designing beautiful, vibrant garden spaces that include edible plants. In these workshops, you can lean how to create a new garden or revitalize an existing space. We can plan out the space together and make it come to life! RCG offers recommendations for seasonal gardening, succession planting, companion planting, and square foot gardening so that you can maximize yields for your space.
Seed Starting Workshops
Starting your own seeds is an easy, inexpensive, and fun way to get your garden going in early springtime, or for a fall planting! We can guide you through all the steps and materials needed to grow and transplant your own seedlings.
Microgreens are edible sprouts that are super easy and fun to grow! They only take 1-2 weeks until they’re ready for harvest. We can guide you through all the steps and materials you need to be able to produce microgreens on your own, any time of year. We can also suggest a variety of delicious snacks with microgreens, including ones that kids love!
Aquaponics setups combine plants and fish together in a mutually beneficial system– and they look super cool! Using basic aquaponics kits such as the one shown, we can give you all the info you need in order to take care of a betta fish and grow edible, nutritious sprouts. These setups are also great for growing and propagating herbs and houseplants. Aquaponics is a great way to learn about STEM and natural cycles.
The gardening cycle wouldn’t be complete without integrating composting systems. In this workshop, participants can learn about how the composting process works, including how to compost with worms (which kids love)! We can advise on what type of composting system would work best for your site.
Terrariums are mini decorative indoor gardens. In these workshops we will guide you step-by-step on how to plant succulents and decorate your terrariums. These make wonderful gifts also!
Garden Education Activities
We have developed a year-round curriculum of garden education activities and games for the classroom, either in person or virtually. These activities help reinforce learning in a fun and engaging way! Feel free to reach out for more information about our curriculum and year-round lesson plans.
