#175: Unity Gardens Organic Workshop(s)

We're in the last half hour of Earth Day 2011, but that doesn't mean your commitment to the environment and staying green has to end at the stroke of midnight. In fact, why don't you take tomorrow and learn about about one of the most fulfilling ways to participate in the sustainability movement? Learn how to grow your very own organic garden.

We've previously highlighted the good work being done by Unity Gardens, and it continues tomorrow as they offer a full-day slate of classes related to the skills and ideology surrounding organic gardens. You can learn about the fundamentals such as Proper Soil Preparation. You can learn about the products of your garden in classes on Edible Flowers, Herb Teas from the Garden, and Cooking from the Garden. You can also take the time to learn why exactly you should plant an organic garden in classes on Organic Gardening and Sustainability. I really can't overstate the wealth of information that Unity Gardens is offering the community. Even better, all of this wonderful information is free. For a small fee you can order a lunch or you're welcome to brown-bag it. All classes last one hour and visit their website here for a schedule and more information. Whether you stay for one or stay for the whole day, you're guaranteed to leave with new knowledge and, hopefully, an appreciation for just how complex, how intricate, and how rewarding a skill gardening can be.

Where: Keller Park Church/Unity Gardens, 1001 W Bryan Street (for helpful directions go here)
When: All day! (from 9am-3pm)
