This is a new in-depth gardening workshop that combines our Garden Planning workshop and our Successful Garden workshop!

Learn what, how and when to start planting for a well-timed and productive year-round garden here in the Bay Area using organic methods. We will talk about propagation, companion planting, cover crops, perennials, and choosing the best varieties to grow for our area. We'll go over what your soil needs to get through the year, and the proper methods of bed preparation and crop rotation to prevent pests and diseases. We'll also discuss drip irrigation and the basics to setting your own system up. Bring your gardening questions that need answering during our Q&A section. Workshop is rain or shine (we have warm dry space for rainy days). Seating is limited so register early. For all levels of gardener.

We will go over soil, nutrient needs, pests and diseases, sunlight and water requirements to get the most out of your vegetable garden. If you've taken our Vegetable Planning workshop, this class will further build your knowledge on gardening. Bring your gardening questions that need answering. Workshop is rain or shine (we have warm dry space for rainy days). Expect to get a little dirty.

We are offering this workshop 3 times so please choose the date that works best for you. This event sells out fast and seats are limited so get your tickets early.
