Plant a Garden!
Come and explore the amazing world of plants and learn the fundamentals of gardening. From basic Botany to breaking ground in the garden, come and learn about the art and science of growing. In this workshop, we will cover the physiology of plants, the environmentals factors that affect plant growth, plant propagation, and the importance of healthy soil, all while planting vegetable and flower seeds and reparing a garden bed.
Over the five weeks in Workshop One, you will be able to seed and propagate plants in the campus greenhouse and learn how to develop a garden. At the end of the workshop, you can take your seedlings home and put them in your home garden.
Over the five weeks in Workshop Two, you will continue to plant, propagate, and transplant but will start to focus on cultivating particular vegetables and herbs for the garden.
