Some workshop highlights include: Rain Barrels — to save rainwater for your garden; Soil Testing — to test urban soil’s safety for growing food; Garden Planning — to map out your garden plot to grow the highest yield of fruits and vegetables; Seed Starting — to ensure that your seeds sprout healthy in the early Spring; and Compost — to make the most of organic fertilizer in your garden.
