Garden Planning and Seed Starting

March 17, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$10.00 – $20.00

Whether you are an experienced vegetable gardener or just getting started, it’s never too early to start planning your garden! It takes just a bit of knowledge and intentionality (and sometimes a bit of luck!) to produce your own food. This course will help participants gain an appreciation for planning, preparing, and participating in a gardening experience in addition to some seed starting basics! Don will also guide us through what we may need to consider before getting started, including the costs of growing in our space, suggested tools, and commitment required to maintaining your own garden.

Don Ludke has been a certified Master Gardener for over 13 years, a public-school teacher in Maryland for 40 years, and a home gardener for 50 years. He has taught adult gardening classes on a variety of practical gardening and landscape topics throughout the state. His gardening areas of interest and knowledge include companion planting, crop timing and garden design. He appreciates sharing his experience and knowledge with all who will listen and who are interested in learning about the benefits of gardening.
