We’re fleshing out our class schedule for this year and are in need of teachers to help us out! The classes are listed below and if you or anyone you’re familiar with has a passion for and some experience with these topics, please don’t hesitate to volunteer.
Classes should last about 45 minutes; the rest of the meeting will be dedicated to business and scheduled swaps. You should plan for all levels of gardening experience amongst those you’re teaching.
