ABOUT OUR CLASSES

We offer a variety of classes on topics such as vegetable gardening, food preservation and cooking, permaculture, and urban livestock. Our expert instructors are passionate about the topics they teach and prepare participants to apply new methods outside the classroom. We emphasize experiential learning and strive to provide educational opportunities that give people a chance to learn from one another, practice their skills, and gain hands-on experience whenever possible. 

EQUITY & ACCESSIBILITY

Tilth Alliance strives to provide educational experiences that honor our values of accessibility and equity. Currently, we offer:

  • A sliding scale pricing structure to make classes accessible for everyone, regardless of financial means. When registering, please select the ticket type that works for you.
  • In solidarity with food justice and food sovereignty for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), we reserve a few spaces in each class for BIPOC community members free of charge. If you identify as BIPOC, please use the code Heartbeet2021 when registering.

Please reach out to marnisorin@tilthalliance.org if you have any questions.

Tilth Alliance members and donors also receive a discount on classes — make your gift online today!

If you are interested, please reach out to marnisorin@tilthalliance.org and share a bit about yourself and your idea for a class or learning experience, such as teaching a class, hosting a workshop, giving a talk, etc. We offer equitable compensation and support with registration, marketing, and curriculum.
