Gardening Essentials Month by Month

Saturday and Tuesday Sessions

Learning how to create more of the plants you care about is a critical skill for resiliency.  Some plants and trees can just be grown by planting their seeds, but others are better duplicated via cuttings, grafting or dividing.

This is a “hands in the dirt” course, with a theory session followed by putting it into practice.  There will be a lot of plant material after each class to share, take home and start growing.
