Classes and Education

Available to our Clients

North Kent Connect partners with local businesses and organizations to bring Clients a series of free, educational, and hands-on classes. The classes focus on a variety of different topics, and due to the COVID-19 restrictions, are shared through online videos at this time.

Qualified Clients of North Kent Connect can earn V.I.P. Program credit for attending classes.

Current Classes

Community Garden

There are still spots available to earn NKC Client V.I.P. credit towards fresh fruits and vegetables from our Farm Stand by volunteering in the Community Garden .

Open to NKC Clients, this 18-week garden program, in partnership with Plainsong Farm, is designed to grow new gardeners, develop a new network of gardening partners, and support community health by providing fresh, seasonal produce for neighbors experiencing economic hardship.

Clients in the program will be able to view educational videos to assist with the items in the garden from Mike Edwardson of Plainsong Farm.

For more information, call Catherine Landers at (616) 866-3478, or email catherine.landers@nkconnect.org.
