Gardening 101 How to grow your own food (start of new class)

Great news! Michelle is taking on teaching another round of Gardening 101. She is a great teacher and can answer your questions far beyond the scope of this course.

 

This is a series of 8 lessons.

The course covers the following subjects:


1. Intro and Basics of Organic and Permaculture
2. Garden Siting and Design
3. Soil and Composting
4. Choosing Plants and Basic Botany
5. Seeding and Planting
6. Irrigation
7. Weeds, Pests and Disease
8. Using your Harvested Food

The course is geared towards beginning gardeners, so, even if your hands have never touched soil or plants, you are welcome. If you already know something about growing your own food, you are sure to deepen your knowledge and walk away with more ideas to implement.

However, if you are an experienced, or somewhat experienced Gardener come and take the course as well. We would like for you to step up into the role of a teacher. We are providing a curriculum as well as training if you further need/want any after attending a class series. We like to offer this course over and over again, in different time slots and hopefully with different teachers. If you are interested, please contact me.

    I volunteer in the 4th grade at Kempton Elem. Our ESS program director, Junior Guzman, has started gardening in our empty planters. We would love to find people who would work onsite with the kids or oversee our work. Kids are great and excited. School is out and tomatoes ripening. Need a good plan for next year to produce food, herbs. Some recipes. We have some flowers. Very much in need of bags of soil. Suggestions?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
