  • Growing vegetables in the back (or front) yard is the freshest way to add tasty nutrition to your plate. But what can you do if you don't have a big back yard, or it is not the best location for growing vegetables? Veggie gardening in containers is a versatile way to turn sunny-but-small spaces like balconies, side yards, and driveways into food-producing mini-garden plots.

    Popular garden designer Steve Gerischer will share his favorite methods and strategies of growing vegetables in containers. Along with enlightening us on his preferred container vegetables, Steve will provide details on container types, soil preparation, site selection, and seasonal variation. Container gardening allows almost total control over the conditions -soil quality, location, and even seasonal sun exposure. This enables the home gardener to tailor the growing conditions to the crop, for the best yield.

    Registration for the free class is required. Please E-mail botanicgarden@csun.edu to request a space in the class or for more information. Driving and parking instructions, as well as the class meeting location, will be sent upon registration.

  • Registration begins Saturday, February 25th.
