This course will teach food gardening in late winter and early spring for both beginning and experienced growers. We will explore garden design and preparation, composting, seed starting and cold frame use, and fruit growing as landscaping. We will also learn how growing food enriches health and relationships, and reclaims valuable life skills that preserve the environment for future generations.
