You won't just learn about sustainable gardening concepts; you will apply the concepts to your own landscape!

Each week you will

    • applying the concepts you learned in that session.
  • analyzing your soil for nutrients and pH
  • class projects to determine soil texture
  • plant selections
  • and more
