How can you easily establish a garden that maximizes enjoyment while minimizing labor and costs?

This class builds upon the earlier Veggie Garden Layout and Design Class, but that class is not a prerequisite. Gardeners of all experience levels are invited.

During this fun, information-packed class, you will learn how to…

  • Start a new garden bed with minimal effort (and without a tiller)
  • Rejuvenate an existing bed
  • Establish plants by seed or by purchased seedlings
  • Properly care for newly established seeds and plants through the growing season
  • Effectively keep weeds and undesired bugs at bay

You will come away with the knowledge, confidence and encouragement to establish a garden this spring that will produce an abundance of wellness throughout the growing season.

Please wear standard gardening attire for hands-on, outdoor learning: hat, gloves, jeans.

Handouts, yummy snacks and door prizes will be available. The class is free and open to everyone.

Taught by Fred Meyer, Master Gardener and certified Permaculture Designer. Hosted by Backyard Abundance in collaboration with Iowa City Parks and Recreation.

Backyard Abundance is an educational nonprofit that helps people create environmentally-beneficial landscapes.
