The Park District has generously offered free classes to PTO members involved with their school gardens. If you have an interest in working with the Irving garden, either this year or in the future, but you’d feel more comfortable by taking one of these classes to better prepare, please email Laura Crawford, firstname.lastname@example.org, to sign up.
Note that you don’t have to be an expert gardener to help out in the Irving garden; anyone is welcome!
The free Park District classes are:
1. Vegetable Gardening on Saturday, March 2, 9 and 16 from 9 am to 11 am. This will cover all the basics from soil preparation and vegetable selection to vegetable harvesting.
2. Start Your Own Seeds on Saturday, March 23 from 9 am to 11 am. How to purchase seed, when and how to germinate it and how to grow seedlings on to garden-ready plants.
