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 includes a weeknight interactive Zoom session, followed by an outdoor, hands-on class in the garden on the weekend.

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 Thursday, March 17; 6-8 p.m. and Saturday, March 19; 10 a.m.-1 p.m. The Saturday portion will take place in small groups of up to 12, in order to prioritize everyone’s health and safety.

We will be following current public health recommendations. You will have the option of signing up for the Saturday session at either Bradner Gardens Park in South Seattle or Good Shepherd Center Learning Garden in North Seattle. During these hands-on days, please be prepared for outdoor activities, dress for the weather and plan to wear a mask.
