Class 6 in the "Let's Get Ready to GARDEN" series

Have you been wanting to start a garden but aren't sure how to get started? Have your prior attempts at growing turned brown? If you've gardened before or not, would you like to plan your garden with a group of fellow plant and dirt lovers?

We will savor seed catalogs and packets, discuss various options for planting and garden design for whatever your situation. We will plan for starting seeds, purchasing plants, and transplanting. The class will cover the basics of garden care through the growing season, address individual questions/situations, and provide resources for you to continue your gardening adventures. There may even be some seedling swapping and a forum for celebrations and support outside of class.

Class 6 will go over:
"Gonna Make This Garden Grow!" Care of the summer garden.

• Learn fundamentals of plant and garden care through
   the growing season.
• Learn about succession and companion planting, pruning and trellising,
   weeding and deadheading, pests and pest control, composting
   and harvesting.

Non-chemical weed and pest management methods will be discussed. Participants will be provided with Extension Office approved information on pest and weed control, garden hygiene and composting.
