Growing vegetables in Florida can be tricky, but with a little know-how and experience, you could be well on your way to healthier eating by growing your own backyard vegetables. In this 12-week workshop, you will be assigned a 20ft. x 20ft. plot of land where you will learn how to grow your own vegetables. All of the vegetables you grow will be yours to keep! Each class will start off in the classroom where you will learn the basics of soils, plant growth, plant selection, organic vegetable gardening, pest management, fertilization, and much, much more. The classroom session is followed with hands-on activities in the garden where you will practice the methods and techniques learned in the classroom.
