Hands-On Gardens: Part 1 Thursdays Learn How to Grow Your Own Food
June 28, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am$250
Through a partnership with Cardea Health, we have begun a learning garden. This idea was founded to teach people how to grow organically and become knowledgable on growing their own food from seed to plate. We want people to view food as medicine. Join me for a 6-week long garden education program. Class will be limited to 15 students to maximize engagement. Each week you will be engaged in the garden with maintainence, pruning, planting, etc. You will learn the following skills:
1) Insect ID, plant-diseases, and organic control methods
2) Soil conditions and how best to cultivate healthy soils, nutrients needed, composting
3) How to harvest, prune, train plants
4) How to succession plant
5) How to save seeds
6) How to go from seed to plate
Dates: Thursdays 9-11:30 am
June 27, **We skip July 4, July 11 , July 18, July 25, Aug 1, August 8
*A new session will begin Aug 15 and run through September 19 so that later season plants, harvest, and issues can be covered. Should you wish to participate in 6 weeks between the 2 sessions, please contact me for that possibility.
This course is open to ALL from 14-94! We encourage students of all ages, NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! This course will also take part on paralell Mondays (a link for that registration), should you wish to be in the garden 2 days a week! Once a month we will have Saturday programming, for those who cannot attend during the week, topics TBD. This class will need a minimum of 6 people to run.
