Raised Bed Gardening class

raised bed gardeningI will be teaching a class on raised bed gardening on Saturday, March 25th from 9 a.m. to noon and would like to invite all of you to it!

My husband Bill and I have been growing our vegetable garden in raised beds since the 1980’s and I can’t imagine growing them any other way.

This talk will be held at the Spokane County Extension building at 222 N. Havana St. It costs $12, which goes directly into the Spokane County Master Gardener program. You can register for the class on their website.

Here’s what I will cover:

  • why raised beds are so ideal
  • how we became interested in them
  • materials to use for the bed: what’s safe, what’s not
  • how to assemble them
  • hoops, covers and other accessories for the beds
  • examples of different types of raised beds
  • how to grow cool- and warm-season vegetables in raised beds

This is truly my favorite class to teach each year and I hope you can come!
