Community Teaching Garden is a fun, hands-on
beginning organic gardening program. Participants learn
how to plant, cultivate, harvest, and
preserve fresh vegetables in a supportive learning environment.
Classes are held twice a week from May through September.
New! We have added a second Teaching Garden site at Intervale in partnership with Burlington Area Community Gardens. Participants can enroll for the full program at Ethan Allen Homestead or at the new site.
Classes at the Ethan Allen Homestead are on Monday and Thursday evenings.
Classes at Tommy Thompson Community Garden are on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. A special instruction-only option is available (see below).

The full-season CTG
course fee is $130 per
person if sharing plot, or $220 per person for an individual
plot. The course fee includes weekly instruction and a copy of
The Vegetable Gardener's Bible by Edward Smith, all seeds, plants, supplies, water, use of garden
tools and raised beds, garden potlucks, and all the delicious fresh
produce participants can grow and eat. Plots are approximately 80 sq ft. Limited income applicants can
apply for scholarship assistance to cover
up to half
of the CTG course fee thanks to the Frank Way Memorial Scholarship Fund.
The instruction-only option is for gardeners with plots outside the Teaching Garden. The cost is only $60 for one basic gardening workshop per week (Wednesdays) for the whole summer. Email email@example.com for more info.
