Square Foot Gardening Workshop!

Join us this Saturday April 23rd 10am-12noon at the Green Lab Urban Farm for a demonstration and talk about the Square Foot Gardening system.

Jennifer van der Fluit, Square Foot Garden expert, will facilitate a 2 hour presentation/lecture/demonstration.

Class description:
Learn a new method of gardening that eliminates long, single rows and wasted space by condensing your garden into small boxed areas! This method simplifies rows of organic produce into manageable bites, allowing you to conserve money, time and resources!  Square Foot Gardening is a wonderful activity for gardeners of any ability!  Whether you consider yourself a green thumb or a hopeless gardener, you will discover that Square Foot Gardening is the way to grow!  Jennifer van der Fluit is a certified Square Foot Gardener and teacher in Long Beach, California.  She is also a master composter.  She has been featured in the LA Times for her living mural planted in front of their Wrigley home.

If there is interest, we will schedule follow up classes: a box-building workshop and seed starting.  With a planting session on another Saturday.
