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 3 will go over:
"So....I bought these seed packets..." Seeds and Seedlings.

• Learn some basic botany.
• Learn about seeds and their needs for growth.
• Learn about sowing dates and make a plan for planting the seeds
   they want to plant to be used later.
