Now in its twenty-first year, this class is ongoing, very friendly, and easy to enjoy while learning tips, secrets, and methods of a truly professional gardener. The Instructor has thirty years of background in her trade to share with you.


The most fantastic spring and summer gardens are started in winter!

Join this quarter’s class for more ideas and share yours. This season is for preventing diseases, controlling insect pests and banishing weeds. Learn about soil-building, pruning, bare-root planting, vegetables for cool winter/spring harvest and start warm season crops for summer.

Your garden soil is the first focus to create your best garden ever this spring. You will then be able to easily have a weed free garden, flowers, vegetables, home orchards, containers, trees, lawns and herb gardens. We will cover how to do dormant spraying, some composting, proper watering methods, organic plant nutrients, mulching, and much more.

A $5 materials fee will be payable to the instructor.
