VGSD: Gardening for Apartments and Small Spaces

Just because you live in an apartment doesn't mean you can't grow your own greens!

Class topics include:

Container Growing: Upcycle (wine crates, dresser drawers, bookcase, wood pallets) or build your own to fit your space.

Starting Seeds & Soil.

Micro-greens 101: They don't need sunlight, can be eaten 14 days after germination, and contain up to 40 times higher levels of vital nutrients than their mature counterparts!

Vermicomposting: Worm composting helps you reduce waste, makes excellent quick compost, and can be done in small spaces like under your sink! No need to turn or tend to compost piles.
