Nice turn out for last Thursdays inspiration class. . . . and because we really want people to grow their own food and be successful, we've decided to offer two classes this week.

Beautiful garden starts of herbs, peppers, Malibar spinach, eggplant, okra, tomatoes and more by Vilardi Gardens

So. . . this Thursday, July 25th, from 9 - 10 am we're offering a very basic, but very important foundational class for anyone who has never gardened in their life, maybe has done some gardening but thinks they have a brown thumb or has done gardening and some things have grown - but you need a refresher.  

Simple Inspirations: 
4 Steps To Starting A Successful Garden
9 - 10 am - Thursday, July 25

You will come away with an understanding about the influence of . . . 
the sun (finding that location for your garden)

the soil (our kinds of soil, soil preparation, and the 4 types of space to use for your garden)

your sprinklers (aka types of watering systems, when to water, how to water, 
when not to water, types of water)

and the seasons - and how to choose plants specific for our growing seasons.

COST: $10
