Growing Your Green Thumb
March 22 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Tuesdays, March 22 and 29
Countless new terms and often-conflicting advice can make gardening intimidating, not only for newcomers, but also for those who have been gardening for years. In this course, we’ll set gardeners up for success in the potentially overwhelming world of horticulture. Using practical, real-life examples and engaging activities, we’ll review how plants are named and classified, basic plant anatomy, and how environmental factors can influence plant growth. Participants will leave with the knowledge necessary to help them make informed decisions, improving both indoor and outdoor gardening success.
Kate Garland helps gardeners improve efficiency and build horticultural skills through a number of educational avenues including workshops, newsletters, social media posts, and one-on-one support. Additionally, Kate works with school and community gardens to develop plans that will build sustainability and improve community impact. The Master Gardener Volunteer program she coordinates, trains civic-minded gardeners to help with much of this community and individual gardener support.
