What you'll learn in this urban gardening class:

From windows to terraces, indoors or out, apartment dwellers have ample opportunity to garden—even as winter approaches! Whether you want to develop your green thumb by learning how to select incredible houseplants (and how to care for them) or by growing herbs indoors during the colder months, this day's classes will show you how.

10 am-12 pm Creating an Indoor Garden
Successful indoor gardening requires knowledge of both plant material and growing techniques. Learn to select the right plants for various locations, based on light levels, temperatures, and aesthetics. Discuss unusual plants, tools and supplies, and maintenance such as grooming, nutrition, and pest control that will keep your plants in good shape.
Chris Raimondi, CLP,  182GAR299B

12:45-2:45 pm Succeed with Low–Light Plants

Houseplants don't have to be dull! Find out about new and unusual plants that thrive in the light-deprived corners of your home or office. Learn how to analyze light conditions to choose the right plants for your space. Discover cultivation techniques for these shade-loving species, including fertilization, water management, and pest control. Your household flora will never be the same again! 
Richard Rosiello, 182GAR299C

3-5 pm Growing Herbs Indoors
You can have fresh herbs year-round by learning specific techniques for growing them indoors. Whether you want to successfully transplant your herb plants from an outdoor garden to an indoor one, or are starting your indoor herb garden from scratch, this class will teach you the essentials of managing indoor growing conditions for aromatic herbs. You will also learn the best ways to harvest herbs and how to store them for maximum flavor and fragrance.

Reviewed by Itsik D. on 11/19/2017
This is a full-day lecture, sitting in a classroom, listening to a teacher. The teachers are knowledgeable, and some of the content is indeed interesting. But overall, we were expecting this to be a hands-on, interactive and practical day of gardening techniques, tips and practice. We were not expecting this day to be a passive lecture day, with a lot of overlapping / repetitive content between the 3 sessions. Also unclear, what "materials" were involved? There was talk of a non-refundable materials fee (I assumed this was for plants, pots, soil, seeds, etc...) but no materials were given or used during the class. Better expectation setting could have prevented our disappointment.
