Vegetable gardening provides the opportunity to select the varieties you like. It provides your family with fresh produce that is free from harmful pesticides.

This class will cover the basics of planning your vegetable garden, preparing the soil selecting plant and seed varieties (including hybrids and heirlooms), starting plants from seed, planting, tending your plants, troubleshooting problems, harvesting, extending the season, getting the most out of small plots, and putting the garden to bed for the winter.
