If you are a home gardener who wants to learn how to grow vegetables for “healthy eating” or want to learn how to garden while mindful of the land and the environment, these classes are for you. Alternatively, if you want to use gardening to exercise and/or bond with your children and grandchildren, or use gardening for its therapeutic benefits, now is the opportunity to acquire the skills you need. You only attend the class(es) that meet your needs.
