Local Upcoming Classes and Events
This is about where my watermelon seedlings are at...
The Twin Cities is really a great place to develop a taste for gardening. There is so much community support, such as these class offerings:
I just discovered Egg Plant Urban Farm Supply, and although I’ve never been, they’ve won my heart. I noticed their class list and I can’t wait to give one a go. Has anyone out there had the pleasure? Details!
Gardening Matters has a Resource Hub that lists a variety of gardening classes and other learning opportunities. Check out their event calendar.
Bachmans is hosting a class tonight by The Minnesota Project on Growing Fruits in the City. Bachmans also has a list of seminars, classes, and other events here.
Sustainable Yards class at REI.
Saint Paul Community Education Program has a rain barrel workshop, a native plants, rain garden, and lawn care class, managing yard waste & composting, and a garden design class (tomorrow!).
Minneapolis Community Education Program has a ridiculous list of gardening classes, these are the ones that still have room: container gardening, gardens for dogs and people, health benefits of gardening, low maintenance landscaping, native prairie wildflowers, two rain
garden, sustainable landscape design and care, and two beginning veggie gardening classes.
