Urban Gardener

This series classes will provide you with a better understating of gardening basics so you can become a more successful gardener.  


Track 1 is titled Seed to Supper and intended for those whose interest is in starting a home vegetable garden or perhaps learning how to become a more successful vegetable gardener.


Track 2  is our Landscape and Lawn series which builds upon the classes from the Seed to Supper track to include flowers, trees, shrubs, and turf.


You can pick either track or select individual classes that match your interests.  


Due to a scheduling conflict with one of our presenters, we shuffled the order of the classes a bit from previous years and this year we added a lesson on composting in Session 2.
