Class Experience

Students will learn how to grow their own food from seed or seedling to harvest. They will learn the importance of caring for plants on a regular basis and what plants need to grow and thrive. 
I have gardened for 30 years and also raise chickens and bees. I am a certified aromatherapist and am studying herbalism.
The homework will be to care for their garden!
To complete this class, students will need the following materials: 1) A round, square, or rectangular planter box or tub. The size may vary, but if you would like to grow a few different types of plants, I recommend about a 2-foot long planter or longer. Alternatively, you could use several smaller round pots, a "whiskey barrel," or whatever you have that is handy. It does need to have drainage holes in the bottom. 2) Container potting soil to fill your containers. 3) Scissors to open the bag. 4) A gardening hand trowel or old spoon to dig in the dirt. 5) Vegetable seeds or seedlings to plant. "Baby," "Tom Thumb," or other smaller varieties work well. Here are some suggestions: *Small, short carrots like Parisian carrots or other small varieties. *Baby greens lettuce. *Mesclun (cut and come again varieties of lettuce). *Spinach. *Radishes. These are a great option because they grow quickly. *Violas. These are beautiful, edible flowers. *Herbs like mint, lemon balm, or chamomile. Choose a few that sound fun and interesting. You don't need them all! 6) If you are planting seeds, a spray bottle to mist the seeds with. Otherwise a water can or pitcher will do. 7) Water. 8) Popsicle-type sticks or plant markers and a permanent marker to write the names of the plants on. Keep in mind, students will need a place to work that won't be hurt by dirt!
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I will provide a handout for students with the basic information that we learned.
