What will I do in the class?
- Basics: Gain knowledge needed to turn your bare ground or Bermuda grass lawn into raised-garden beds – in the right place, with the right soil, at the right time, with the right plants. Small enough to manage, big enough to provide real food.

- water management
- plant starts, seeds, and propagation
- good and bad bugs
