Thursday July 13 5:30-7: Ecological Methods of Pest Disease and Control

90% of the insects in the garden are beneficial, but those that aren’t can cause big problems! We’ll go over common garden pests (and diseases) and learn ecological methods for keeping them under control.

Thursday July 20 5:30-7: Intro to Herbalism

Intro to herbalism: Nature was our original pharmacy and there are many plants in the garden that have healing properties. We’ll lead a discussion for gardeners to share their own knowledge and how we learned it. Then we’ll introduce some new medicinal plants and different techniques for harnessing their power!

Thursday August 10 5:30-7: Edible Weeds
Edible weeds: A weed is just a plant that’s in the wrong place at the wrong time. Some of our “weeds” are beneficial or even edible. Learn how to identify these tasty “volunteer” plants.

Thursday September 14 5:30-7: Seed Saving

Seed saving: Seed saving is a critical component of any garden and agricultural life cycle. It has also become highly political and ever-more crucial due to the rise of mega-corporations who control an increasing amount of our seeds and biodiversity. This mini-workshop looks at basic theory and considerations when saving seeds from the garden. We will also discuss different techniques for saving different kinds of seeds.
