You don’t need a backyard to grow your own food!
Container gardening is great for beginners, apartment dwellers and anyone looking to add extra space or variety to his or her garden. This class will introduce you to the many benefits of container gardening and cover everything you need to get started, from choosing containers and crops to ongoing maintenance. Leave with the knowledge you need to grow herbs, salads, small fruits and heat-loving crops like tomatoes and peppers in containers! This class is lecture-based with participatory demonstration in the learning garden, so dress for the weather and messy garden activities.
