This summer you will feast on your very own vegetables. From starting seeds indoors to putting your garden to bed, and everything in between, we will walk you through the entire gardening season, laughing and learning as we go. Avoid common beginner pitfalls, have support to deal with problems or questions, and have fun in a relaxed, social setting. Think gardening is a lot of work? Think again… we utilize Permaculture principles to create a no-dig, low-maintenance, abundant garden.

Topics covered include: seed starting, choosing your site, garden planning, building your garden from scratch using mostly recycled materials, what, when and how to plant, watering, troubleshooting, dealing with pests, soil building, making compost and compost tea, tree planting, when and how to harvest, preserving your harvest, saving seeds, and getting ready for winter.

Children and adults learn more when they learn together! Kids ages 6-18 are half price with an accompanying adult. Babies under age 1 are welcome to join with their parent. Any two gardeners working on the same garden and using only one set of supplies get a $50 discount, each. 

Saskia Esslinger is a permaculture designer, and teacher. She seeks to inspire and enable people to grow their own food, and to create a food gardening revolution. She trains permaculture garden teachers through her website, http://teachgardening.com/ and she also is the director of Homer Folk School!
