Back by popular demand! Superstar gardener Marian Woodard presents a very special opportunity to learn the most effective, most natural, deeply earth-centered gardening practices in this 6- week series. No matter what size your yard is, you'll learn to be more self-sufficient, conserve water and energy, and build community with your fellow gardeners. Students will work on shaping and re-designing their own growing spaces throughout the class. You will see your yard in a whole new light! Drop-ins are welcome for any date; you DO NOT need to take the entire series.
February 23 -- Water: Slow it, Sink it, Spread it, Save it
Whether El Nino or drought, learning how to capture and use water can transform your garden.
Participants will be able to: identify the most relevant water capture system(s) for their property (may include swales, dams, earthworks, ponds, greywater); use an A-frame to identify contour lines (for swales), and know how to implement the best system for their circumstances. Also, vermiculture!!
