Garden Planning with a Purpose

February 26, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$8.00 – $10.00

Whether you are an experienced vegetable gardener or are gardening for the first time it’s never too early to start planning your garden. It just takes a little bit of knowledge and some planning to successfully produce your own food. This course will help participants gain an appreciation for planning, preparing, and participation in a family gardening experience, through the guidance of Master Gardener, Don Ludke. In this class you will learn what you need to consider before beginning, including the discussion of conceptual ideas, the costs for growing in your space, and the tools and commitment required to planning out your own garden.

Don Ludke has been a certified Master Gardener for over 10 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 willing to learn the benefits of gardening.
