Sustainable Gardening

It's been a few years, but we feel this is the perfect time to bring you an updated version of our Gardening class. Sustainable gardening is a heritage skill that has existed for millennia, and with the cost of groceries today, now's your chance to learn how to grow food for a fraction of the store cost. 

The subjects of this class include:


  • Garden site selection
  • Deep soil preparation
  • Growing from seeds and plant cuttings
  • High calorie crops
  • Pest prevention and much more!


2024 dates are:

Sunday, June 2nd 9 am to 4 pm

Monday, October 7th 9 am to 4 pm (this date is the first day of our 5-day Homesteader Week program)
