Grow Your Own Organic Produce
Adult Enrichment / Home & Garden -
(In Person) With a home garden you can grow sweeter and more nutritious produce than anything you buy in a store, but it’s essential that you start with healthy soil and learn the basics about garden design. Led by the founder of HomeHarvest, this workshop will discuss soil health, site preparation, sustainable land-use techniques, and how to maximize garden productivity while harmonizing with the landscape. We’ll also cover how to incorporate beautiful ornamental plants throughout the garden. This comprehensive workshop will help you design an attractive garden and grow food in an urban or suburban landscape using sustainable and organic practices. Please note: Class meets at Arlington High School.
