Amazing Vegetables A to Z Full Series

AMAZING VEGETABLES A TO Z FULL SERIES

Rocky Mountain Gardening Elective

This is the class that will hone your skills as an amazing vegetable gardener. It is designed to take beginners to a new level and remind intermediate gardeners of the success strategies that always work when we go off course and forget the science of what got us to success in the first place. We will cover the science of vegetable gardening, do some myth busting, and provide you with some clear cut strategies to get the biggest harvest from the space you have.

The classes are 2 ½ hours each and are designed so that you can take the entire series or drop in for a refresher on the single class or classes that you want to brush up on. We will use a combination of hands-on, lecture and demonstration to keep you engaged.

 

You can sign up for each individual session, or sign up for all four classes in the series at a discount by signing up for "Amazing Vegetables A to Z Full Series".

 

Please note: We will not cover gardening in containers in depth in this class. If that is your interest, please see Crops in Pots.
