Some of the topics that will be covered:

The Big Picture What do we need to know to have a successful garden? Where do we start?-------------

Healthy Systems Overview
What does a healthy system look like? If we want to create a healthy garden don’t we need a pretty good sense of what healthy looks like? ---------------

Planning Your Garden Gathering information is the first step and putting it on paper is the second.------------------

Soil Is a Living Thing, we’ll cover the Soil Food Web and how to make a happy home for your soil biology. -----------

Fertilizer Is More Than NPK! Fertilizer companies talk about Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium, but those are just 3 macro-nutrients. The law of the minimum says plants can only perform as well as their most deficient nutrient.-------------

Compost Shouldn’t Be Stinky
Making good compost doesn’t have to be a secret. We’ll cover plant, manure and worm composting. ---------------

Putting It All Together or Gardening Like a Cat (less labor, more naps) You’ve gathered lots of information, you’ve observed things in your yard, now you can put the pieces together. --------------

Making Your Bed Jump start your garden by getting the soil right from the start------------

Focus on Growing Getting your plants started can start on a window sill or cold frames. We’ll look at those and passive greenhouses, high and low tunnels, hydroponics and aquaponics. --
