Home Gardening Course - Draper UT Stake

Here is some info on something that the neighboring Stake is doing, which we are welcome to attend, which is right up our Focus Alley!!

"Be prepared to grow large crops of delicious fruits and vegetables in your own garden. In this six week (2 hrs a week) course you will learn all the basic principles and practical gardening methods which make home gardening easy, enjoyable and productive: including varieties, planning, planting, soils, mulching, tilling, control of weeds, insects, and other pests, climate, watering, fertilizing, pruning, and fruit tree culture. You will come away with a "green thumb."

The instructor, Gordon Wells, is the author of "Successful Home Gardening", the 156 page textbook, which is free to all students. He has a Masters Degree in Agriculture from the University of California, Davis and has taught home gardening for many years. (For questions about this class call 801.423.2655)

WHEN: Tuesday, Feb. 2 - Mar. 9, 2010 (6 classes)
TIME: 7pm - 9pm., Draper Stake Center Chapel
LOCATION: 13085 S 300 E, Draper

This class is FREE to attend, the textbook is an online book that you can print on your own computer, and registration is not required but he does encourage attendance at the first class so that he knows how many handouts to bring. He will provide lots of handouts and each class will build on the previous one.
