  • Plant Rotation & Companion Planting: March 30, 2017
    This class focuses on nutritional needs of vegetable plants and natural ways to manage fertilization and insect management. After attending this session, you'll have a better understanding of soils, compost, and plant management.

  • Early Spring Crops: April 6, 2017
    Gardening can begin as early as March if weather permits. This class will cover the spring crops: leafy greens, peas, potatoes, and brassicas. After this class, you'll want to start digging! We will also talk about how to manage these same crops in the fall.

  • Summer Crops: April 13, 2017
    Warm-season vegetables bring a different set of issues than any other season of veggies. Tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and melons can be the most difficult plants to grow. The temperature and moisture play a huge role in these crops and what diseases and insects attack them. This class focuses on best practices for growing these widely-used and grown summer crops.

We hope you can join us!
