Event Overview

This 90 minute class will teach you how to have the earliest garden in the neighgorhood. We'll be learning about the cold frame, soil blocks, seeds, and which crops go well with this part of the season. This will require doing a minimal amount of work inside the home, but it's so worth it when your harvesting salads by the middle of April. Besides, who doesn't love to see green things growing coming out of the dark winter months? This will have you looking so forward to growing and harvesting crops earlier then you've ever had them before. Experience? None needed. Just a desire to eat better and safer foods. Yes, and save money while you're at it!
