Event Description

Instructor: Carol Stuttard

Learn how to design a bountiful vegetable garden specifically for a low desert climate. This multi-part series will guide you through the creation process so you will be ready to plant your garden in the fall and have an abundant harvest. Homegrown organic veggies are the best tasting and healthiest food for you and your family.

Part 1 of the Vegetable Garden Design for the Desert will cover the basics of desert garden site selection, answering questions regarding how to choose the right place for your veggies and what considerations to take into account as you plan and prepare your beds. Topics include: solar orientation, watering, soil conditions, microclimates, basic tools and techniques.

The next part of this 4-part series is October 8th. Sign up here.

Please sign in with the volunteers at the door.

$15 fee is payable with cash or check. (Make checks out to  Valley Permaculture Alliance).

Please park on the street.

I would like to attend Carol Stuttards class Monday as would my husband.  How do I pay for it?  The website lets me register for the following Monday, October 8th but not October 1st.  Thanks!

Kat, I hate that I wasn't feeling well enough to make it to this class, but are there going to be more that covers the same information??
