$ Gardening 101 [Lemon Grove]

  • May 10, 2014 · 9:00 AM
  • Marianne's

Learn how to start a garden and be successful growing your own food. This class will cover eight lessons on the basics of gardening, including, but not limited to and not necessarily in this order: 

*organics and permaculture; 

*garden siting and design; 

*soil and composting; 

*plants and botany; 

*seeding and planting; 

*irrigation; 

*weeds, pests, and disease; 

*harvesting. 

This series will provide students with a mix of classroom education and hands-on garden experience. Classes will be held on 6 Saturdays, starting on May 10, 2014.


We encourage you to come to all classes, but if you only can make it to a few - let us know.

Similar, less in depth, classes are offered around the county for $ 75. However, we want this class to be open to all and will offer it as a "pay what you can" class.

Meet your teacher: Michelle received her bachelor's in Landscape Architecture from Washington State University. She now works as a landscape designer with emphasis in native landscapes, edibles, Permaculture design and educating the public in sustainable design. Her company Edge + Element Design focuses on getting the most out of spaces, uses sustainable materials and making the world a better place.

Meet your host: Marianne is an educator and community activist. She teaches regular Yoga classes, is proud of successfully completing two Permaculture Design Courses (PDC) - one in San Diego with the very excellent Josh Robinson and one with the foremost leader in the Permaculture World, Geoff Lawton. She also is a Master Composter with the Solana Center and teaches classes on composting and various Permaculture related subjects.
