Organic Garden Planning Workshop

To sign up go to: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/organic-garden-planning-tickets-10797871725

While not the most glamorous aspect of gardening, planning is essential to a successful season and a fruitful harvest. This class will be useful for beginner gardeners and experienced micro-farmers who want to maximize their harvests. The class examines how your goals affect your garden design, including how much of a particular crop to plant and how much yield to expect. We will discuss planning issues related to:

Space and Aesthetics
Crop Rotations
Variety Selection
Irrigation and Pest Management
Convenience and Harvesting Companion planting
Succession planting A handout covering the above principles will also be provided. **Class price is on a sliding scale to accomodate participants with a range of incomes. For this class the price ranges from $30-$60. Please choose the price that is right for you.
