Grow food not lawns!  Increase local food security, improve your diet,
beautify your surroundings, build community, reduce pollution and
energy use (It takes 87 calories of fuel to transport one calorie of
perishable fresh fruit from west coast to east coast).  As supporters
of the Food Not Lawns national movement, we will hold four sessions
dealing with topics that include whole system design, garden
preparation, permaculture, water-wise gardening, seed saving,
planting, and free resources.  Presenters include master and highly-
qualified gardeners.  


Class fee is $18, plus $5 for materials.
