Description

Now more than ever people are understanding the importance of growing our own food. That's why during this time of social distancing the DC Parks and Rec (DPR) Urban Grower Course has been converted into an all online webinar course called the DPR Urban Grower Webinar Course. The DPR Urban Grower Webinar Course is a FREE online course focused on teaching people all the basics of gardening from building a home garden to cooking and preserving your harvest. The course is (12) 2-hour classes and virtually meets twice a week for 6 weeks every Tuesday and Thursday from 11am-1pm from March 24 to April 30th. Each class will be recorded as well for those that can’t attend the scheduled time, although its encouraged to attend each webinar if you can so you can ask questions and participate in video conference discussions. To receive a webinar invite and recording afterwards all participants must register.
