LAS CRUCES – Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more people have been interested in starting their own vegetable garden, and sometimes they have realized that it is not as easy as it seems.

Fortunately, there is the Seed to Supper online program, offered by Ideas for Cooking and Nutrition (ICAN), which operates within the Cooperative Expansion Service of the State University of New Mexico and is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. The Seed to Supper program was introduced in 2019 in three counties in New Mexico to provide a comprehensive guide for adults to start gardening with vegetables.

The program, which includes both personal and online components, was immediately successful and announced in early 2020 that it intends to expand to four more counties. However, the epidemic has generated greater demand for online courses across the country.
