Basic Gardening

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Have you wanted to start a garden but weren’t sure where to begin? Or do you have a garden but have questions about what to grow or simply want to share your experiences with other gardeners? This Gardening Basics class given by the DeKalb County Community Gardens will help you get started and keep growing! We will discuss garden placement and planning, soil structure and biology, plant selection, and maintenance. Though we’ll focus on annual vegetable gardens, there will be some discussion on ornamentals and perennials as well.

If the weather is agreeable, we will take a short walk to the Community Garden’s garden space in downtown DeKalb to get a look at some gardening in action. We hope to see you there!

This program is FREE and open to all, no registration is required!
