*Edit: The January 2022 classes are 2-week classes, meeting Mondays 1/3 and 1/10. The February 2022 classes listed right now will be both classes in the same week (Tuesday/Thursday). Students will meet weekly for guided instruction and question/answer time. Lesson 1: How to use graph paper to plan a garden. Students will be shown show to find their gardening "zone." Students will be given gardening resource ideas and also asked for their input--we can learn from one another! Lesson 2:...
Students will learn to plan out a basic garden. They will learn how to select a location for optimal sunlight as well as select shade-loving plants for less sunny spots. Students will learn their garden "zone" to help them select the best varieties of plants for their garden. Students will learn how to read a seed packet.
Students have very minimal homework--they will ask their parent/guardian for help ordering seed catalogs, books, and/or going to the library.
Graph paper, colored pencils/markers/crayons, and seed catalogs.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
- Peaceful Valley
- Southern Exposure Seed Exchange
- Seed Savers Exchange
- Territorial Seed Company
- Baker Creek Heriloom Seeds
- Suggested Reading: "How Does Your Garden Grow?" Sterling Publishing, Inc., NY
- Suggested Older Child/Parent Reading: "Lazy Bed Gardening" by John Jeavons
- Additional Resources: Garden Planning Online
Learners should be able to complete a rough sketch of their garden plan and show it to the class on class 2. Comprehension questions will be asked throughout.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Younger students will need help to order plant/seed catalogs. Students will do best with the suggested reading material.
