Event Overview

Ever wanted to trek out to the garden in early January (yes-in the snow) to pull a freshly harvested salad? This is the class where you will learn how to do it. I've been winter gardening for years in the snowy location of northern Utah and can tell you-its the best time to garden! There's very no work to do during the winter months. In this class, which is held at my home, you will learn the specific crops  that grow well in our location and when to plant them.  At this time of year there's still time to plant about 10 differnt kinds of things. The most important part is learning how to build a simple structure to protect your crops during our cold, snowy winters. Class is 90 minutes long and you'll leave with a planting schedule with crops that are easily and successfully grown.

The price of the class includes up to 5 lengths of EMT conduit being bent to provide a solid structure to protect your garden. You can purchase these at Home Depot or Lowes for about $2.50 each and bring them to class with you. The size of your gardens shouldn't be any wider than 5 feet or any longer than 20 feet when using up to 5 EMT pieces. In addition to EMT, you will need to buy floating row cover and plastic. I will provide the best places to buy both of them.

Participants are strongly encouraged to bring camera's, iPhone's, iPad's, etc. to take pictures and videos of what you'll be learning. We will not be spending any time on gardening methods-just the know-how of protecting your gardens, crops to grow, and when to plant them.  Free, small brussel sprout transplant to all participants that will be ready around Thanksgiving.

What to Bring

Ipads, Iphones, computers, camera's, notepad, 10' lengths of EMT if desired(up to 6 of them)

What's Provided

Planting schedule
Small kale transplant

    This was an excellent class! The teacher shared a lot of gardening information, and specifically, how to plant and maintain a garden in the winter. This is very helpful since I live where it gets very cold and snowy during the winter! I plan on using his many tips and his handout to grow food to eat this winter. I've gone to classes that he's taught before, and I'm still impressed by his knowledge and ability to share this information with us! Great experience!
