Get Up! is an intensive 3-month training program for adults that teaches the basics of composting, organic gardening, public teaching, and sustainable agriculture. Founded in 1996, it is designed for beginner gardeners who would like to be urban organic gardeners, environmental educators, and sustainable food ambassadors.
