Proposal: Year round gardening and garden weed eating 10 monthly classes

  • Rabbit Hole Hollow

    5155 Drakes Branch Rd., Nashville, TN (map)

    36.239174 -86.850820

  • IGNORE THE DATE! This announcement is for planning this class. Interested members will help decide on start date and schedule.

    The delay is due to crises of house burning without fire insurance (hydrant 1 mile away, turned down by company). Slow going design house, raise money, organize volunteers, be contractor... Thanks for you patience.

    This includes flowers that can be eaten, as well as conventional garden crops. Yummy edible weeds that grow in gardens grow big and tender. This class will include how to plan for fresh eating all year. No meeting NOV or Dec. Seed, plants, and produce swaps can happen. Instructor can provide some seeds so everyone doesn't have to go out and buy packages of seeds.

    Cost $30 / class for 10 meetings or $300 for series. Aim for 13 (+) class size.

    RSVP if interested. Barter/cash or barter is possibility. There will be a free meeting for those interested to help plan aspects of the class to make it as wonderful as possible. Maybe class members can share garden space?

    So Sorry, i am still not in a position to hold this class. We are physically working on the house rebuild from fire. (as opposed to working it out on paper)

    This sounds amazing. I cannot attend if you hold it on Saturdays, but any other day of the week I can make it. Like Deborah, I live a few hours away, but this is definitely something I would like to participate in. I'd have to pay as I go, but feel it's more than worth it. Thanks for organizing in spite of how busy you are right now with rebuilding your home.

  • Amy S.

    I have a group of 8 -10 ladies that are interested. I am actually looking for a date sometime in October.

  • Deborah G.

    I have signed up myself and my son for all three of these incredible classes. They offer information that is very valuable (but rarely available). Obviously, we cannot afford to pay up front in their entirety, and want to be sure that we can pay as we go, bringing cash to each session. We live in Memphis and will have to drive to Nashville, but don't want to miss the opportunity to participate and learn. Thanks!

  • Casey

    I wanted to go ahead and sign up though I know that the date will most likely change due to your circumstances. Will the updated info or confirmed current info be emailed to us so that we may know for sure? I really don't want to miss this opportunity but I certainly don't want to be a pest while you are rebuilding (or ever for that matter).

    February 24, 2015

    • Cindy M.

      Yes, do sign up! The classes will happen eventually! Thank you and everyone else for your patience!

    I've been here a year hoping this would materialize, but heading back to VA the end of this month. Sorry I'm going to miss it......Happy foraging!

    Hope the house project is going well. Any update on it or the meetup? Best wishes.

    I am wanting to learn more about edible plants in my backyard. I am only wanting to do one class at a time. I want to learn to recognize these plants.

    I'm a little confused given the conversation below. Are we meeting at Rabbit Hole Hollow this Saturday, 11/8/14 at 10 AM? Is this the actual class, $30 each, or a free planning session to determine the class schedule?

    November 4, 2014

    • Cindy

      I can definitely understand the confusion! I have to keep a date posted to keep this proposed class on the Meetup site. The delay is due to being too busy rebuilding our house from a house fire.

    It's a maybe for me. I want to learn about this, but am a bit low on funds at the moment. I thought I'd go to one class and see, maybe, but it depends on my situation in a few weeks. :)

    October 27, 2014

  • JC & Rainy G.

    I am super excited about this walk... I would like to included my entire family. There is four of us... would we have to pay $300.00 for each person? Or is there a family rate. AND is this an edible weeds walk, or is this a classroom/forum type of class?

    August 2, 2014

    • Cindy

      I envision these classes covering both plans for the next season ( fall crops, summer crops etc) as well as members growing gardens and reporting and sharing information and problem solving for current garden season. This would be a mix of classroom and in the gardens.

      August 4, 2014

    • Cindy

      As far as a possible family rate, I will need to wait until I can have these classes, when my mind is free to plan and have them, and not all full of rebuilding my home and raising funds to rebuild my home. Glad you are so excited. Sorry for the long wait!

      August 4, 2014

  • JC & Rainy G.

    So... exactly when will it be? AND are the seeds that we would be receiving/purchasing Non-GMO? Sorry for all of the question. :-)

    August 2, 2014

    • Cindy

      The classes are not scheduled yet. The instructor is recovering from her home burning down and is beginning construction soon. So classes may resume mid 2015.

      August 4, 2014

    • Cindy

      Any seeds coming from instructor would be non-GMO.

    I wish I could come to this so badly, but unless things change by November I work Saturdays from 9am-2pm. What a bummer.

    2 · April 18, 2013

  • Saleena K.

    I am very interested though it is a long drive from where I live, 2 hours each way, and have been a bit of a recluse, since becoming so chemically sensitive. Laundry soap chemicals or perfumes can knock me out and make it hard to enjoy company, comprehend things, stay focused and then drive home... Would it be held inside or out? I am loving the photo albums though...learning much from them... great photos and comments... thank you!

    April 18, 2013

  • Jeanne

    Definitely interested in this. Will be out of town on April 26. Can I poke my head in at May's gathering for instance?
