Organic Vegetable Gardening - A Fresh Approach

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 will explore these ideas and demonstrate how to apply organic techniques and methods in your own garden.

Other classes in the series include:


Learn the Basics

Why should we garden organically? To answer this question, we will examine the basics of organic gardening and discuss the benefits of working with nature rather than against it. We will discuss the adaptability and resilience of plants while exploring genetically modified plants and their role in the environment. Students will also learn about the fruits and vegetables that can be successfully grown in Phoenix.
