ClassGraphic

Learn about backyard container gardening from a master gardener, and build a simple backyard garden box with a woodworker. Using pre-cut materials provided in class students will learn how to build a quality 2’W x 3’L x 1’H redwood raised garden box, and will come away with the skills to build more at home. Students will also learn about special considerations for planting, watering, and plant selection when using containers for your backyard, patio, deck, windowsill, and other urban gardening sites - anything is possible with light, soil, seeds, water, and love!

Students should wear long pants and closed toe shoes, and bring comfortable work gloves. Eye protection and tools will be provided in class. Bring your lunch, and something to drink, for the half hour break mid-day.
