Citizen Gardener #28 with Dick Pierce

Saturday, January 14, 2012 - 8:30am to 12:30pm

This class will teach you how to turn your bare ground or Bermuda Grass lawn into raised-garden beds that are small enough to manage, but big enough to provide real food. This hands-on course covers Central Texas specific topics and addresses the challenges and benefits to growing in our climate. Learn about composting, rainwater harvesting, mulching components, bio-intensive gardening, bed-building and more in a series of 3 classes. After completing the classes students complete 10 hours of volunteer work in any one of our partner gardens in order to gain the designation of "Citizen Gardener". The hours spent as a volunteer enhance students gardening knowledge and build awareness in their communities about the benefits of gardening.


-Course Fee is $30 for two hands-on classes and one evening discussion. SFC volunteers may take the class for $20.
-$10 is used to process a Criminal Background check, necessary for volunteering under any Sustainable Food Center programs. If you feel uncomfortable completing a CBC, please contact SFC as soon as possible.
