Learn how to start a garden and be successful growing your own food. This class will cover eight lessons on the basics of gardening, including, but not limited to and not necessarily in this order: 

*organics and permaculture; 

*garden siting and design; 

*soil and composting; 

*plants and botany; 

*seeding and planting; 

*irrigation; 

*weeds, pests, and disease; 

*harvesting. 

This series will provide students with a mix of classroom education and hands-on garden experience. Classes will be held on 6 Saturdays, starting on May 10, 2014.


We encourage you to come to all classes, but if you only can make it to a few - let us know.

Similar, less in depth, classes are offered around the county for $ 75. However, we want this class to be open to all and will offer it as a "pay what you can" class.

Meet your teacher:
Michelle received her bachelor's in Landscape Architecture from Washington State University. She now works as a landscape designer with emphasis in native landscapes, edibles, Permaculture design and educating the public in sustainable design. Her company Edge + Element Design focuses on getting the most out of spaces, uses sustainable materials and making the world a better place.

Meet your host:
Marianne is an educator and community activist. She teaches regular Yoga classes, is proud of successfully completing two Permaculture Design Courses (PDC) - one in San Diego with the very excellent Josh Robinson and one with the foremost leader in the Permaculture World, Geoff Lawton.

      the classes halfway build on eachother, but you could come to any one of them and get something out of them. We are on 5 of 6, this Saturday is Irrigation and next week will be Harvesting. I know I won't be teaching another class myself until August.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
