Explore Organic Vegetable Gardening Series
The term organic has been around for decades, and organic gardening has become increasingly popular with gardeners wanting to lessen their impact on the environment. Organic gardening is more than just not using pesticides and artificial fertilizers; it is building healthy soils and selecting the right plants and seeds. The Organic Vegetable Gardening series of classes listed below will explore these ideas and demonstrate how to apply organic techniques and methods in your own garden. Classes are instructed by Jeffrey Schiller, Scottsdale and Glendale Community College adjunct professor.

Nutrients and Deficiencies
To grow an abundance of food, plants need a large supply of available nutrients. The best way to get nutrients back into the soil is through using manures, compost and organic fertilizers. Learn how easy it is to make nutrient-rich compost by following strict organic guidelines, what can or cannot be composted, and why. We will also discuss the important role earthworms play in the garden and how to spot certain nutrient deficiencies in plant leaves.
