High Desert Gardening

May 28, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

USD60

Want to learn how to grow food successfully in our harsh climate?  This class covers methods to help your seedlings survive the spring winds, summer pests, and blazing sun.

We will talk about planning the garden calendar, covering when to start what plants indoors and outdoors in order to make best use of your precious garden space, water, and short growing season.IMG_2373

Rainwater harvesting and greywater use should be the foundation of desert gardens whenever possible, so we will observe these techniques in practice at Ampersand and discuss how to get the most out of small growing areas through staged plantings, inter-cropping, and perennial plants.  We will observe appropriate Permaculture strategies and discuss details from how to prepare your soil to extending your growing season to harvesting rainwater to water harvesting earthworks.
