Backyard Gardening - Learn More & Socialize! Daytime meetup :)

Come learn about Backyard Gardening and meet other people interested in backyard gardening. I will give a tour of my gardens (perennials, herbs, veggie, small pond) for about 30 min and then we can sit and talk about how to start gardens and keep them up.

I'm running a daytime and morning class because people have requested a daytime class and plant sale...more info on beginner gardening and lots of tips. Come with your questions.

Cost for the class is $10 per person cash, includes handouts. I do spray my yard for bugs and the town has sprayed as well but usually not a problem during the day

I have taught garden classes for Wakefield Adult Ed, present at social & garden clubs, over 35 years gardening in my backyard, garden consultant & garden design, perennial & herb grower. This is my passion and want to help others that want to start gardening as a hobby. It's also great exercise when you're out there digging and planting. It's wonderful when you see those small seeds starting to sprout, your perennials getting bigger and bigger, and tasting your first "home grown veggies" organically too.

Hope you can come have fun in the gardens!

    Again, people said they would come, no one came or cancelled at the last minute. ): people came from another group, we enjoyed the gardens and sun came out! Nice! I'm going to plan another in late Sept or early Oct, hope you can come. MUMS will be blooming, always something in bloom!
