Workshops and Training

The Greater Lansing Food Bank’s Lansing Roots program is offering a workshop series on a variety of topics related to small-scale farming. Lansing Roots is designed to help limited resource or historically underserved individuals begin successful market gardening and farming through an incubator farm setting. Workshops are open to the public and donations are requested on a sliding scale from $5-15 (participants are asked to pay what they are able).
