February 29: Warm Weather Crops - Learn how to make the best of our growing season including which warm weather crops are best started indoors, which can be direct seeded, what conditions and fertilizers each crop prefers and how to fight their pests and diseases organically.

March 14: Seed Starting - Start your own seedlings! Learn about when to start indoor seedlings, watering, using lights, and dealing with common problems.Everyone will get to plant a six-pack of seedlings to take home. We will also review which crops can be planted directly outdoors and when.

March 28: Weeds: the Good, the Bad, and the Tasty - Some weeds are actually native wildflowers benefitting your vegetable garden's pollinators. Some are invasive horrors with plans to take over your garden. And some are edible, delicious little morsels that can be harvested and enjoyed.
