Event Overview

This series will teach you the entire square foot gardening method with over 9 hours of instruction! Participants will be taught using a combination of powerpoint presentations and hands-on experience. Learn why you don't need to buy seeds every year. There's no digging, no hard work, no weeding, and no thinning. Enjoy 100% of the harvest in 20% of the space while saving over 80% of the water! You won't be needing to ask other "experts" what you need to do in order to have a great garden-the best you've ever had! Space will probably be limited.
