The Urban Garden Education Series is a set of classes designed to help Detroiters of all ages grow, maintain, harvest, preserve, and eat fruits and vegetables from their urban gardens and farms. Classes are $3 for Garden Resource Program members and $5 for non-members.
Check out the 2016 summer line-up here.
SUPER SOIL: Understanding Soil and Fertilizer. Thursday, July 28th, 6-8PM at City Temple SDA Church, 8816 Grand River Ave. south of Joy Rd. Healthy soil is the basis of a thriving garden. Understanding the fertility needs (and fertilizer possibilities) of our plants will help us decide what to add to the soil to promote a healthy garden. In this class we will discuss ways to build healthy soil and options for organic fertilizers.
RSVP Only! TOUR: Blueberry Picking. Saturday, August 13th, 9AM-2PM Leave from the Keep Growing Detroit office at 76 E. Forest Avenue. Blueberry picking is a super fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon. In the company of fellow gardeners we will pick our share of delicious berries (and eat a few too!) as we walk the rows of beautiful bushes on summer afternoon. The tour is $5 for GRP members and you pay for what you pick (pricing available closer to event). Contact us to RSVP.
