Introduction to Growing Food at Home (Tucson)
Saturday, October 6 at 9 am (PT)
October 6, 2012
Time: 9AM – 4PM
The future of sustainable agriculture will be in small to medium scale organic food gardens grown right in and around our cities. In this workshop that includes hands-on work, you will learn how to set up a complete desert vegetable garden. We will show you how to increase your garden’s health, production, and nutrient value, using an integrated system of compost, mulch, companion plant selection, and irrigation to improve fertility, structure, and life in your soil, and produce food with minimum water use. We will conclude the class with an exploration of “food forests”- a diverse layering of annual and perennial food plants that can help increase garden health through permaculture strategies.
Cost: $59 – includes all course materials.
Class limit is 10 participants.
