Carousel gardening urban

There's no better time to dip a toe into urban homesteading than spring, when the weather is warming up and life is returning to the haze of simplicity. You shed layers, and your clothes become easy and light. You substitute your car in favor of a stroll to take care of your weekend errands. You're relying less on others, slowing down more and enjoying the bounties that mother nature has to offer.

Indulge in the intoxication of fresh greens straight from the vine with this Dabble class, which teaches you how to construct a basic salad garden with limited space. Salad greens, tomatoes, peppers and herbs are perfect vegetables for apartment dwellers... as they require little space and minimal maintenance.

Instruction will begin with a basic introduction to the world of apartment gardening, and highlight key information, including: gardening spaces (containers, raised beds, ground), soil conditions, watering, mulching and additional non-chemical maintenance as well as starting from seeds vs seedlings. Students will walk away with a better understanding of growing from home, and their very own arugula gardens to kick off the season!

    Kelli clearly has a lot of knowledge and experience in organic gardening. It was great to learn from a season pro but also she was happy to tailor the class to what we wanted to know.

    Actually getting to plant arugula to take home. The easy, comfortable conversation feel of the class.

Kelli Wefenstette grew up in rural Illinois gardening at the knee of her grandfather. She started her first herb garden on the back deck of an apartment and in the four years since she has since expanded from a few modest pots to four raised beds in her front yard. She's turned gardening from a hobby into a passion by leading informal gardening workshops for the past year that have garnered much interest. She can't wait to share the tips she's learned along the way with fellow green-thumbed Dabblers!
