Normally, you don't think about training for gardening season.

But that was before the interest in gardening exploded on the scene, leaving shelves bereft of seed, garden soil, canning jars and more.

Luckily, Tom Kasper says seed suppliers figured this out right away last spring, and spent much of 2020 getting ready for this planting season.

But while you wait, St. Louis County Extension, the local chapter of the Young Farmers Coalition, and the Open Hands Food Project are revving up the educational content on their websites, Facebook pages and YouTube channels, so if you're in front of a screen anyway, you might want to stop by and see what you can learn.
