Workshops at Cloud Mountain Farm Center

Due to Covid, we are limiting workshops in 2021. Registration is required for all workshops. All workshops will be held 100% outside, regardless of weather, and face coverings are required.

At Cloud Mountain we are passionate about learning. We offer the community a variety of workshops on topics ranging from basic food gardening to advanced fruit tree care. Many of our workshops take place outside in the demonstration gardens and fields to provide real-world examples and hands-on guidance. Please come prepared for the weather; even our indoor seminar space can be on the cool side.

Most workshops are $15 per person. Our advanced classes are more in-depth and hands-on, and are $50 per 2 session workshop. Please register for classes at our website or by phone at (360) 966-5859.
