Join Ms. Brekke and other learners from the northern hemisphere to discuss food gardens and growing! This class is best suited for students gardening in USDA Hardiness zones 3-7 (Ms. Brekke is between 5b & 6a). If you are outside those zones please reach out and we can work to accommodate the class for your climate. Each week we'll talk about weather and seasonal changes and how they effect the garden. We'll also discuss what seasonally appropriate garden tasks gardeners can be working on...
- Students will build social skills by sharing their garden with the group - Students will learn about how weather effects the garden - Students will learn gardening basics - Students will learn to apply basics learned in class to their own gardening environment
While no homework will be assigned in class it is expected that learners are spending time in their garden each week and are bringing their experiences to class.
Students will need a place to grow and general support items for growing. Support items may include the below. - trowel - soil and compost (any kind) - seeds - seed starting trays - grow lights - seedlings None of these items are specifically required for any one class and we will discuss additional items that may be helpful each week in class. I am committed to helping students grow food no matter how much equipment they may have. Additionally, while not required, some students may find it helpful to have a writing implement and paper to take notes in each class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
