learn about DFW’s unique growing season(s), climate, soils, plants, and water resources
raise safe, nutritious food for your family
teach children to know and enjoy gardening
What will I do in the class?

Basics: Gain knowledge needed to turn your bare ground or Bermuda grass lawn into raised-garden beds – in the right place, with the right soil, at the right time, with the right plants. Small enough to manage, big enough to provide real food.
Techniques: Raised beds; soil, mulch, and compost; bio-intensive/square-foot gardening, organic methods.
plant varieties that work best in the North Central Texas area
water management
plant starts, seeds, and propagation
good and bad bugs
80% hands-on -- Remainder of class is discussion time
Do It,…Learn It,…Go Home and Do It:. Saturday AM workshops include fun outdoor activities with a great group.

How it works:

Complete the Course - learn the skills, gain the knowledge, and be encouraged
Community Service - volunteer 10 hours within the program (generally at the garden where your class was hosted)
