Welcome to SUAC
Sustainable Urban Agriculture Coalition (SUAC) is a group of volunteers who facilitate the creation of gardens to increase accessibility to locally grown, healthy produce. Our members provide mentoring, information, materials, seedlings and other resources to groups and individuals who wish to get involved with urban agriculture. Whether you want to create a community garden, school garden, food forest, special project, urban farm, CSA, farmer's market, Co-op or garden in your own yard, we will be happy to help!
We meet the first Monday of each month at 7 PM at Enoch Davis Recreation Center. Meetings are free and everyone is welcome. These Community Gatherings include guest speakers, videos, presentations, group discussions, garden and farm tours, and more. Check for our notices, get on our email list or contact us for further information!
Rainwater Harvesting Workshop
This Rainwater Harvesting workshop will begin with general water conservation strategies that anyone can implement to save water outdoors. We’ll then discuss how to create a rain barrel, discuss setup and safety concerns, and offer suggestions on larger scale systems.
