We’re very excited to announce our third official class at our nursery “Intro to Growing Your Own Food” which will take place Saturday, December 15th, 10am-noon. In this class we will cover the basics of how to grow your own food including:
– Determining the best location of your garden and getting it started
– The importance of sun exposure
– Understanding soil and how to improve it
– How to water
– Crop choices and timing
– Planting seeds
– Basics of maintenance (harvesting, weeding, amending soil, succession planting, organic fertilization, organic pest management)
In addition to covering the basics, we will include a tour of our demonstration garden with a demonstration!
Space is limited so if you’d like to attend, we recommend registering soon on our eventbrite page. Also, there is limited seating so we encourage attendees to bring their own chairs if possible in case we don’t have enough. We are planning for there to be many more classes at our nursery and would love for you to join us!
