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:
