Come learn how you can grow herbs, flowers, and vegetables in smaller areas like side yards or decks.
Join the UCCE Master Gardeners of Amador County for their free Public Education class, “Small Space Gardening Styles: raised beds, square-foot gardens & straw bales.” on Saturday, March 7, 2020.
Raised beds allow you to grow in areas with poor soils or in a variety of containers. Square foot gardens show what you can grow in a single square foot. Gardening in straw bales will give you a built-in medium that can be located and relocated from year to year anywhere you have a sunny location. Master Gardeners will share the pros and cons of these small space gardening solutions.
Handouts will be provided. This class is free and open to the public. Reservations are not required. All classes are held in the GSA Building at 12200-B Airport Rd. in Jackson from 9 a.m. until Noon.
For questions, call the UCCE Master Gardeners of Amador County at the UC Cooperative Extension Office from 10 am until noon, Tuesday through Thursday, at 209-223-6838 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
