Organic Vegetable Gardening for Beginners

from A2Reskilling


In this class you will learn the basics of organic vegetable gardening. The class will cover the basic growing requirements of vegetable crops including information about soil fertility, light, water, pest and disease prevention as well as tips for specific crops. We will also discuss growing vegetables in difficult situations such as in small spaces, shady conditions, gardens that get eaten by animals, and growing near walnut trees. Much of this information will also be in handouts. The handouts will also include information on recommended local planting dates.
