Backyard Gardening, Learn & Socialize

Location image of event venue


As per a special request for a daytime class...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, garden design, container gardens, and more) and then we can sit and talk about how to start gardens and keep them up. It's all about the dirt! LOL Plants will also be available for sale. No experience necessary. Post any questions but email me unless it will benefit all.

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 daytime isn't an issue. 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! Come with your questions.

Please pay $10 to Jean when you arrive.
