Due to high demand we've scheduled one more session of our "Introduction to Organic Vegetable Gardening" class on April 11th from 6:30-8:00 PM!
Payment in advance is required to register for the class. Class fee is $25, which is directly funding changes to our electric fence to exclude varmints from the crops. Class fee is non refundable if you cannot attend (the varmints will be attending even if you aren't).
Hosted again by our good friends at The Life House 506 N Goliad St in downtown Rockwall. Sign up by pre-paying at The Life House in person or email them at email@example.com to find out how to pay over the phone.
The class will cover a range of topics to help the beginning vegetable gardener be successful growing their own food. Topics will include:
- what is organic gardening & how to do it
- what to plant & when including variety selection, heirlooms vs hybrids
- site selection including raised bed gardening vs in ground
- soil biology and how it affects food quality
- irrigation methods
and much more!
Taught by Kim Martin of Barking Cat Farm. Kim has 25 years of vegetable gardening, the last nine spent farming professionally on larger acreage. Barking Cat Farm raises all of their own transplants from seed and uses organic growing methods with a focus on sustainable soil biology.
