Organic Vegetable Gardening Basics

Saturday, January 27, 2018, 9 – 11 a.m.


Join horticulturist Lisa Hilgenberg to learn the basic techniques and tools required to grow your own vegetables. Site selection, bed and soil preparation, seed sowing, transplanting, and harvesting techniques are just part of what will be covered. This introductory vegetable-growing class is best suited for those with little or no vegetable-growing experience. Each student will receive a packet of seeds to grow at home.
