Sustaining the Cycles

 

Home Grown Gardening Classes

2017 Classes Begin January 28th

 

Home Grown Gardening Classes were developed to help homeowners learn how to garden and grow food in their own backyards or community gardens. The monthly classes are facilitated by Mary Matava, agronomist and owner of Agri Service, and Diane Hollister, North County’s premier gardening instructor. Each class focuses on topics commonly encountered by gardeners in our area. Classes are packed full of information for gardeners with varying levels of expertise.

Home Grown Community Gardening Classes are held at the El Corazon Senior Center on the fourth Saturday of each month at 10 AM.
