The New York Botanical Gardens is offering an edible gardening course designed to equip community gardeners, teachers, and city residents with the best organic techniques for growing vegetables safely and effectively, particularly in an urban setting. The program, with hands-on gardening instruction, consists of six classes, both in the classroom and in the field. Each student will have the opportunity to design his own urban vegetable gardening project as a component of the course. The projects are open-ended, with two main goals: to grow more food, and to pass on what you have learned to an identified group in your community.
Bronx series will be held on six Wednesdays, February 27–April 3 • The New York Botanical Garden, Watson Building • 6–8 p.m. • Deadline to apply is Monday, January 28
