Tips 1: Planning Your Vegetable Garden

 This is the first of two classes planned by Project Grow to help gardeners with the problems that are typically encountered throughout the growing season. 

This class is designed with the novice gardener in mind, though experienced gardeners may gain (and share) some ideas that will promote success in the season to come. Topics to be covered include, among others, factors to consider when designing its layout, selecting the vegetables to grow, deciding where and how you will plant them, managing weeds, and choosing materials and products to support and protect your plantings. Experienced Project Grow gardeners Joet Reoma and Royer Held are the instructors.

Future classes include information on: Dealing with Heat, Weeds, Watering and Pests

 If you are a novice gardener, or even an experienced one, attend this class to learn how to garden more effectively and efficiently in 2020. Experienced Project Grow gardeners, Joet Reoma and Royer Held, will share tips and techniques that have helped them to garden successfully.

Topics will range widely, to cover problems often encountered by gardeners at the start of the season, and will include, but are not limited to, the following: preparing beds for planting, choosing the right tool for the task at hand, amending the soil, decoding seeding and planting instructions, selecting appropriate staking methods and materials, using row covers effectively, watering wisely, preventing weeds, and the like. Class will be open to questions and individual problems.
