Vertical Gardening - Watering [part 2 of 2]

Vertical gardening involves the use of vertical support systems designed to grow individual plants vertically rather than horizontally.  It is  a niche that evolved out of gardening in small spaces either by design or necessity as in urban settings. This class will look at how Small-Scale Vertical Gardens are watered. We will explore some garden irrigation systems suitable for specific small-space gardens using motorized and gravity-fed drip irrigation systems, and wicking systems.   Registration Fee: $10. 

The class will be taught by Master Gardener and Project Grow Board member Joet Reoma.
