Whether you are an experienced vegetable gardener or just getting started, it’s never too early to start planning your garden! It takes just a bit of knowledge and intentionality (and sometimes a bit of luck!) to produce your own food. This course will help participants gain an appreciation for planning, preparing, and participating in a gardening experience in addition to some seed starting basics! Don will also guide us through what we may need to consider before getting started, including the costs of growing in our space, suggested tools, and commitment required to maintaining your own garden.
