What you'll learn in this urban gardening class:

Urban gardens have long played an important role in nourishing city dwellers and enhancing communities, from the victory gardens of World War II to the verdant plots springing up in yards, empty lots and on rooftops today. With the increasing popularity of fresh, local “farm to table” foods and a return to living in the core of many cities, there is a growing interest in urban gardening. Gardening offers flavorful, healthy and inexpensive food, fresh air and exercise, the pride and satisfaction of providing your own food, and a deep connection to the place we call home. Houston gardeners may enjoy abundant produce and flowers at least nine months of the year, with proper plant selection. Master naturalist Glenn Olsen will provide a comprehensive overview of urban gardening in the Houston region with a field trip to a local farmers’ market.
