Please be aware of the traffic changes due to road construction-

Scott Blvd. is now closed at 1st Ave *they are putting in a round-about*. This will affect those of you who are attempting to approach Harvest Preserve from the west. If you come to Harvest via Dodge St., you will have to take 1st Ave to Rochester St, then go east to Scott Blvd. You will be entering the main gated entrance across the street from the big red bar., The gate will be open for you.  If you've reached Tamarack Trail on your left you've gone too far. 


The event is held outside. Masks are optional. We will try to maintain 6' distancing.


This class was developed in collaboration with many community partners using grant funding from the Johnson County Community Foundation and the Roy A. Hunt Foundation. It would not be possible without these sponsors and supporters. Please frequent these generous organizations to thank them for donations of time, materials and funds.
