It grows on you: Urban Growth Bounty education series offers gardening, sustainable food, chicken and beekeeping classes through November

Presented by the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, Urban Growth Bounty will grow your skills with fruit and vegetable gardening, cooking and cheesemaking, food planning and preserving — even chicken and beekeeping classes.

KGW News recently featured the first cheesemaking class on an evening broadcast. View the video here:

New partners and well-known experts are on board for the 2010 series, including Oregon Tilth, Ivy Manning and the creative hands at Salt Fire and Time, and Abby’s Kitchen. Classes for all skill levels are offered from February through November and held at locations all over the city.

Urban Growth Bounty will help you create your urban homestead, whether it’s Monique Dupre’s recipe for sustainable eating on a budget, Naomi Montacre’s keys to the care of urban chickens or Josh Volk providing the real dirt for growing prolific produce.
