Grow It Eat It


What is the Grow It Eat It Program?

The mission of the University of Maryland Extension (UME) Grow It Eat It (GIEI) Program is to promote backyard and community food production. Since 2009, Master Gardeners have taught classes/workshops, developed demonstration gardens, and have educated Marylanders how to produce their own affordable and healthy food while using sustainable gardening practices in their home, community, and school gardens.

In 2017, the GIEI Program was awarded the designation UME Signature Program by the University of Maryland for its tremendous success and statewide popularity. The University of Maryland Extension is proud of the outstanding work performed by the Master Gardener volunteers as they pursue their educational outreach mission of the Master Gardener Grow It Eat It Program.

The Queen Anne's County Master Gardeners host vegetable gardening classes at the Galilee Luthern Church (1934 Harbor Dr. Chester, MD) on the first Thursday of every month at 7 PM. All calsses are Free and open to the public.
