Sketch-UP for the Home Gardener

Want to create a beautiful landscape but don't know where to start? Try this! We're going to walk you step by step through how to use Google SketchUP to create a 3-D rendering of your own personal space. This is a good way to track sun patterns year round as well as see how much space that chicken coop is really going to take up. It's also great for planning hugelkultur beds, raised beds, walkways, arbors, kitchen remodels and almost anything else you could think of!

This will be a hands-on follow the leader class, so bring your own laptop or a friend who has a laptop, or be prepared to take very good notes. We'll have power strips and internet available, but please download the free software before coming here; http://www.sketchup.com/
