Cancelled: Vertical Gardening - Overview [part 1 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. Two topics will be covered: (1) Small-Scale Vertical Garden designs that are often implemented by necessity in small gardens among urban dwellers, and those adopted in large gardens as part of a particular featured gardenscape. We will look at simple to complex vertical support systems for small-space gardening. (2) Very Large-Scale Vertical Garden designs like garden walls and facades of buildings, vertical farms, the Garden in the Sky found in modern cities like Singapore, Hong Kong and other places as part of government policy on ecology entertainment. The class will be taught by Master Gardener and Project Grow Board member Joet Reoma.
Registration Fee: $10.
