Design a Healthy Yard

September 30, 7 – 8:30 p.m.

Sometimes we think of spring and summer as the seasons for our gardens to really shine, but fall is the perfect time to plant shrubs and trees. If you’re new to gardening or just want a refresher, this class will teach the basics about how to design a yard, how to choose plants that will thrive in our Pacific Northwest climate, and how to give them a good start in your own garden. This is an online class.

Put Your Garden to Bed

Most seasoned gardeners already know that building healthy soil is integral to healthy plants. In this class aimed at gardeners who already have some experience, you’ll learn how to put your edible and ornamental gardens to bed to prepare them for spring. We’ll also teach you how to tidy up your yard in a way that still provides essential habitat to the wildlife that help keep your garden healthy year-round. This is an online class.
