We are lucky enough to have a member of our group who could get us the use of a conference room at the center where he works at the last minute. The meeting room has its own entrance on the south side of the building. It is the set of doors on the far left. But, we can get drinks or snacks to bring into the room from the snack bar area.

Square Foot Gardening

Cassie Holderman D’Aula has trained directly with the author and creator of Square Foot Gardening, Mel Bartholomew. She organized the first Square Foot Gardening Teacher Training Symposium to be held outside of the state of Utah, which was in August 2009 in Newark, Ohio. At that event, Cassie co-taught along with Mel and helped set some of the standards for future trainings. Since that time, Cassie has traveled with and co-presented with Mel across the country.

Cassie has been teaching Square Foot Gardening since 2008 and has presented to well over 3000 students. She has presented at the Central Ohio Home & Garden Show, the Licking County Home & Garden Show, as well as various other locations in Ohio and is a frequent presenter for the Upper Arlington Life Long Learning programs. In 2010, Cassie was keynote speaker for the Delaware Master Gardener’s spring event, Green Thumbs, where she spoke to an audience of around 300 guests.

Cassie is not charging for this training but would accept donations to cover her costs.

Soil Best Practices

We will explore best practices for bed soil for organic gardening.
