"Seed Starting/Plant Propagation" Time: 12-1:30
It does not matter if you are a beginner or advanced gardener when it comes to "Spring Gardening Fever". You know; that antsy feel when the first rays of spring seem to cut through the heavy winter clouds. Well, we have the antidote for it. Come and join our instructor and other gardeners in this workshop that will help you explore all important stages of starting your 2013 garden. You will learn about equipment, containers for indoor seed starting, soil and seed starting mixes, grow lights and watering schedules, transplanting and how to care for your young plants so you can enjoy a bountiful summer harvest. Don't forget to bring your gardening gloves for hands-on planting!

Instructor: April Johnson from the Rodale Institute
Estimated cost per registrant: $25
"Soil Building 101" Time: 2-3:30
A fertile garden starts with a fertile soil. Join us for a lesson in practical home soil building, where we will explore the processes of a healthy soil ecology and apply its principles to create and restore fertile soils at home. Whether you're looking for solutions to improve an already existing garden site, are turning a lawn or sloped land into a garden or have no workable land at all, we will discuss different ways to build soil and properly maintain and care for our soils for lasting conservation and fertility.
Instructor: Maya Baruch, certified permaculture designer and educator
Estimated cost per registrant: $20
"Designing Your Garden" Time: 4-5

Gardening can be a tricky task; how do you prepare the beds for planting? What are the best tools for the job? Which veggies need the most space? How do you maximize your garden's potential? We have simple solutions to gain the most benefits from your home-grown crops. We will help you decide what fruits, vegetables and herbs work well together and best suit your space and your needs so that you can enjoy a flourishing garden this year!

Instructor: Diane Salks from Riverview Nursery & Garden Center
