Gardening: planning to canning

Asa's picture

This course is a full season introduction to growing vegetables in a community garden. We will begin meeting in mid March to begin planning the garden and ordering seeds. Through the growing season, class participants will share the work and the bounty. The aim of the class is for participants to finish the season with the skills and confidence to start their own gardens next season.

Ideally, participants will be committed to being involved in the care of the garden for the entire season. Of course, a benefit of sharing a garden with a group is that the work is shared and there's always someone to cover for you if you go out of town.

This class is being hosted by the Minnehaha Avenue Community Garden. The class will benefit from being in a community garden, as we can see a very diverse set of approaches to growing vegetables in nearly identical plots of soil.

Facilitator's experience: 
(Asa) I've been gardening my whole (admittedly not terribly long) life. My gardening education has been informal but I have seriously applied myself to it, for many years. I was a leader in my college's student run garden. Currently, I am a coordinator at the Minnehaha Avenue Community garden.
