We will live stream the Zoom sessions in the Madden Auditorium for those that wish to participate each week, beginning February 28th. You may attend the live sessions as you choose but registration is requested, so we may provide handouts or other materials.

Learn about hardiness zones, frost and freeze dates, how to order plants or seeds from a garden catalog or locally, reading and selecting seed packets, and starting plants from seed. We'll also cover soil testing and amendments, fertilizer, manures, mulch, watering, and weeding
