Gardening in the Mountains

May 5, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This class will cover what to grow in your garden, how to grow it, and how to get started. We will talk about garden varieties that will do well in the cool evenings and wet mornings in the mountains of WNC. The class will dive deep into how to cultivate healthy soils to encourage healthy plants and how to use integrated pest management to keep them strong. We will explore regenerative gardening and how you can use your garden to produce healthy food and help the environment. Garden maintenance, space saving techniques and vertical growing, pollinator support and attraction, season extension, and what to do to prep for next year at the end of the garden season will also be addressed. We will talk about the basics of botany, ecology, farming, and permaculture to create harmonious goals with a practical plan for a low maintenance space that is fruitful and beautiful. Class is $35, $60/couple. Message us to set up payment and reserve your class.
