Description

Growing Food 101: Planting Your Garden is the second class of a three part series that spans three months (one class each month). Session 2: Planting Your Garden will cover food safety, soil structure, building raised vegetable beds, and setting up irrigation systems and watering strategies. You'll learn everything you need to know to structure your edible garden for success.

This class can stand alone or you can sign up for all three classes. If you'd like to sign up for all three at once, please call the Biofuel Oasis or come into our store to pay; we'll give you a $15 discount on the total ($5 off each class)! Scroll down for a description of all three sessions.

All three classes will take place at the Biofuel Oasis. You will get to do some hands-on work at the end of each session in our large planters and check the progress of your work in the next class.
