Concepts of Integrated Pest Management. We will be discussing organic methods of controlling pests in our urban gardens. We will look at a variety of techniques and strategies for minimizing damage to our plants, while encouraging beneficial insects and wildlife. We will also discuss managment of fungi and crop pathogens in our garden spaces. The goal is for people to leave the class with a clear idea of how to approach damage caused by common crop pests without resorting to chemical measures.... See MoreSee Less

Due to an overwhelming response to this class we must restrict the attendance to the first 50 people who arrive for the class. We have eliminated the $5 class teaching fee. The class is free of charge. We believe that teaching over 400 people in a single sitting would undermine the customer experience. Our classes are oriented toward personal coaching to optimize awareness and understanding of artistic approaches to creating succulent gardens. Near future repeats of this class will be offered free of charge.

Original Description: Let's garden with Mimosas (Yes, Mimosas) with Catalina. This class will be tons of fun and be held at Green Things. $5 class fee during this demo. For any more information please contact Catalina Diaz
