Iâ€™m very happy to announce the very first Citizen Gardener class to be held in the North Texas / DFW area will be in Fort Worth on August 13, 2011.
The class provides people who are interested in growing their own food a clear path to success with a minimal time and money investment.
As a special treat for the first class, Dick Pierce, noted Permaculture instructor, designer, and consultant will be the lead teacher. He makes classes lots of fun and manages to pack in lots and lots of learning in a short time. An interesting approach to teaching is utilized in the Citizen Gardener classes: First thing is DOING it, everyone helps build the beds, getting all the soil moved around and positioned correctly, planting, mulching, etc. Of course there is some discussion during this time, but it is 100% hands-on! After all of that, we have more formal classroom style learning. People wind up absorbing much more of the knowledge when this format is used.
