For the past 6 years we have been teaching an introductory veggie gardening workshop for beginner gardeners at our urban farm & plant nursery and while Covid-19 has moved the workshop online we are still just as excited to share all of our knowledge & resources with you all this season. One other big change to our gardening workshop is that we've decided to make it into a series! In the past we tried to cram all of our most essential tips and tricks into one 3 hour info-bonanza... and it was sometimes challenging for people to soak it all in. This season we are splitting the workshop into 4 sections that will focus on whats happening in your garden during that time in the growing season specifically. 

Video one is our "fall" section and it focuses on starting a new veggie garden in your yard & planning its initial planting. We start with an hour long lecture-style discussion of the following topics:

-how to asses your yard for optimum sun & pick a location
-about our unique seasons & our USDA plant hardiness zone
-why we garden in raised beds
-what type of soil do we garden in and why
-organic soil amendments and how to choose the right ones for your garden
-planning your garden, what to plant where & when
-square foot gardening
-succession planting
-easy to grow crops
-a bit about the importance of composting

After that we move on to a hands on demonstration where we install & plant a standard 4 x 8 foot raised bed in a customers yard. We will go through all of the steps outlined in the lecture, show you how we chose the location, how we built the raised bed, and we plant some popular herbs in the garden to show you our favorite planting & watering techniques. 

If you are planning on starting yourself a garden this fall then this workshop is for you, since it goes through our time tested steps for planting gardens for people all over town. 

Choose from our new sliding scale pricing model for payment and once you check out we will send you a private link so you can stream the video ( in HD or SD, and watch it as many times as you'd like) along with a PDF booklet to follow along with, which includes links to further resources, photos, charts and more. 

Check out the info graphic provided for more information on how to use our sliding scale pricing model. The lowest price, our "institutional" price is for use by teachers at public schools who are incorporating gardening into their curriculum or anyone who is running or involved in a nonprofit organization focused on the intersection of social justice, the environment, food justice and/or sustainability.
