Would you like to grow your own fresh vegetables and herbs, but think you don’t have the space, time or green thumb to do so?

As a member of the Garden Coach Society, and a certified Garden Coach, instructor Karen Creel will use her 30 years of growing vegetable gardens to take you from confusion to confidence.

In this class, we will talk about raised bed kitchen gardens: why you should plant in raised beds, where to locate your raised bed, soil, and planting, what you want to grow, and when and how to plant it. At the end of class you will develop a 4x4 foot garden plan for either a cool or warm season planting.
