Grow Benzie offers a wide variety of educational opportunities- some are formal classes, some are not-so-formal.  Some are so hands-on that you, literally, get your hands dirty from the experience. Not all are food related, but all of them will be related to our mission of connecting you to healthful foods, jobs, life skills and each other.
