WHO IS THIS PROGRAM FOR?
If you love the idea of creating a cutting garden but aren't sure where to start, this program is for you!
Jess will provide a planting guide, weekly summary of step-by-step actions, broken down into achievable tasks so you can follow along. By the end of this course you will have plants in the ground and will be ready come summer for a garden full of blooms.
The in person part of this workshop is held outside in the elements and very hands on! Please expect to get dirty. Wear covered shoes and breathable comfy clothing. Bring along sun protection and a water bottle (it will be hot). Lunch is not included but we will stop from a break, so you can either bring your own or purchase from Three Blue Ducks (there will not be enough time to go into Byron).
