Vegetable Gardening

Cool-season or warm-season vegetables, when to plant, inter-planting and succession planting are all terms you’ll need to know to have a successful gardening season. Getting the most out of our crops is determined by our climate, location, and using the space efficiently; you will learn all of these things in class.

Additional Information

Growing vegetables can be fun and is very rewarding. It might even save you some money! Many gardens can be planned in ways that give us larger crops and more varieties by inter-planting and succession planting. You can grow vegetables in containers, raised beds, or a traditional garden space. Getting the most from our crops is determined by our climate, location, and using the space efficiently. And we all know, everything tastes better when it’s homegrown!

Availability: Most evenings, weekends (excluding mid-March thru June.) Prefer to travel maximum of 30 minutes one-way from my home in Lee's Summit.

During the spring, you can find her working at a local garden center, and in the past, working at an apple orchard in the fall. Monday through Friday, she enjoys being “daycare” for her grandson.
