A garden close to the house is very convenient.

Vegetable Gardening 101 is a workshop geared to people with little space and little time, but who like the idea of stepping out their kitchen door to pick a head of buttery Buttercrunch lettuce, ambrosial Anna Russian and Sungold tomatoes, or delectable Blue Lake beans - all very fresh, all very organic, and all very local.

For this workshop, we'll cover such things as site selection, initial soil preparation, maintaining a healthy soil, avoiding pest problems (leafy, furry, slimy, and pretty pests), what vegetables are most worth growing, when to sow seeds, what to (and not to) transplant rather than sow directly, how to plant seeds and transplants . . . and anything else needed so that you can leave this workshop a better vegetable gardener.

Even if you don't have a garden, it's not too late to start one for this season! Do it for good eating, for fresh air and sunshine, for pleasant and rewarding exercise, and because it's interesting and fun!
