Hub Training Videos

In 2020, we did several virtual training sessions for Seattle P-Patch Gardeners.  The training is common for everyone until the last few slides, which are unique to P-Patch Locations.  This is a great introductory video to what hubs are and how they operate, with lots of pictures.
