There is a nominal charge of $3 for each class to meet the cost of presentation handouts.

If you are a home vegetable gardener, want to learn how to grow vegetables for “healthy eating” or want to use gardening as a means to exercise and/or bond with your children and grandchildren, now is the opportunity to acquire some of the gardening skills you need. You only attend the class that meets your interest.
