No sitting needed, but come prepared to help actually install some best practices! Ttwo class locations to choose from!

Testimonial from participants a year after our first program, Mark & Koree Leisenring:

"Our [compost amended clay soil] garden beds produced a good amount of food for us last year and we expect the same this year. The pea gravel path has really helped with the mud on the side yard and there has been no visible runoff occurring from that area anymore."

"I love our yard still and still feel so blessed to have been able to participate in the workshop last year. We get compliments often."

Green Web Hosting! This site hosted by DreamHost. This web site was designed with a black background and white text because a rumor was spread by Blackle that it reduced greenhouse gas emissions, but that turned out to be a big fat lie debunked by actual experimentation AND... people had trouble reading my website, so I changed it to white. It's still hosted by Dreamhost, a carbon neutral company. Please consider the environment when printing this or mailing me things or traveling to see me for a meeting or... ohhhh, just do your best and change your practices when you learn something new.
