2024 Gardening Classes

Saturday, September 21st @ 9:00 am All about Trees! Come learn all about trees — planting, fertilizing, watering, mulching, pruning etc. After an hour long lecture learning the basics, we’ll take an hour long walk around our campus learning how to identify trees and seeing how proper and improper care affects their growth. This class will take place rain or shine, so please dress appropriately.
Saturday, October 26th @ 9:00 am Putting the Garden to Bed Preparing a garden for overwintering is an art and a science. Removing dead leaves from some plants is healthy; others require them for winter protection. Many species, though dead, contribute food, form, and creature protection; others benefit from wrapping against harsh winds and hungry deer. Learn the basics and how to apply them to your own garden.
Saturday, November 23rd @ 9:00 am Winter Sowing Winter sowing is a low-cost method of method of starting vegetable, flower, and perennials seeds by planting them in various containers and leaving them outside for the winter. In this class you will learn what winter sowing is, why it works as it does and all the instructions you will need to be able to begin your seed sowing as early as December!
