Gardening in a Drought? GAR114 Yes, it can be done, but you have to have your “act together” or it just won’t work. The droughts in the last few years have made a huge impact on our yards and gardens and, as a result, many people have decided to finally do something about it. In this class we discuss soils, building raised beds, organic gardening, fertilizer, compost and mulch, pest control, and watering conservatively.

Haircuts for Your Plants (Pruning) GAR107 Pruning is one of those gardening tasks that most people just can’t or won’t do. The truth of the matter is that plants actually need some pruning to help them bloom, set fruit, and/ or generally prosper...believe it or not. And, they will respond according to how they are pruned. You will also learn what not to do. Instructor: T. Harris Tuition: $19 Tu 1 session 3/20
