Jump Start Your Fall Garden! 9/30

The big secret in Greg's life is that although he has been a gardener in the Southwest since 1975 - he is still discovering how to grow food in the desert. Being a lifelong Phoenix gardener, it is often assumed that he has growing all figured out. So much so that when people tell him they have two black thumbs he just laughs, then promises them that he has killed more plants than they probably ever will! Join Greg as he walks you through the three most important things to know about starting your Fall garden. It REALLY is quite simple. Class is free. Please reserve at:
