Designing, Planning, and Planting your Vegetable Garden Organically

 Do you love the idea of growing your own fresh organic produce? Eating fresh, local, organic food has become a major part of our culture. We all want to know where our food is coming from and what was used to grow it. There is no better way to know than to grow it yourself! There is nothing quite like picking that first fresh summertime tomato and many of us have fallen in love with hard-to-find or expensive vegetables as well. We want those deliciously superb heirloom tomatoes and other vegetable delights like fennel, arugula, shallots, and fingerling potatoes. So many of these wonderful vegetables have become an integral part of our kitchens, so why not our gardens? Whether you are a gardener looking to expand your seasonal offerings, switch to an organic program, or just be better prepared and organized in your garden, this class will show you the way. Join Paul as he discusses the triumphs and pitfalls to avoid growing your own vegetables organically. Paul will discuss design strategies, planning for the season, and preparation and installation techniques. He will touch on crop selection, developing a calendar, and maximizing your space for optimal yields. Please bring your lunch and something to drink.
