Organic Vegetable Gardening
This monthly cohort welcomes all gardening experience levels from all around the Portland metro area. In 2021 we were a diverse group of gardeners with a range of gardening sites from small urban raised beds & containers, community gardens, suburban plots, and large rural sites.
We meet monthly on the second Saturday 10am-12pm January through October. Our cohort meets virtually via zoom. Each month I introduce timely topics with a lecture and slides. Questions, answers, and discussion are encouraged in our small group.
I limit registration to 10 participants to nurture an engaging, meaningful, and collaborative cohort that spends the gardening year together. In this small cohort you will gain practical gardening information, support, and get to know each other & our gardens. In 2021 the cohort was really fun and successful.
If this sounds like the type of supportive group of gardeners you'd like to join please register here
$300 for the 10-month cohort. This small group will fill up fast so please register as soon as you can. Please reach out with any questions: email@example.com
