Want to grow your own food but don’t know where to begin? Learn how to start your organic garden, and continue caring for your crops, so you can eat fresh, healthy food year-round. This two-part, 5-hour introduction to fundamental organic gardening topics takes place over the course of two evenings. The first evening will take place indoors and include an interactive lecture and group conversation. The second evening will take place primarily outdoors, as a hands-on class in the garden. You’ll leave with the knowledge you need to confidently prepare your beds and start your organic garden from seeds or starts.

Topics in this class include:

  • What is organic gardening?
  • Understanding healthy soil
  • How to design and map your garden
  • Choosing crops to grow year-round

Activities in this class include:

  • Cultivating and amending garden beds
  • Planting seeds and transplants
  • Discussion of continued care of plants
  • Tour of garden to observe plant support structures, season extension and a variety of annual and perennial plantings.

Class dates are Tuesday, May 7; 5:45-8:15 p.m. and Thursday, May 9; 5:45-8:15 p.m. Class size is limited to about 15 and we will be following current public health recommendations. During these Thursday evening class, please dress for the weather and be prepared for outdoor garden activities.
