I'm thrilled to be able to teach and share my knowledge with you. Growing your own organic food in an urban setting can significantly change your health and way of life.

Some details...
I will be providing full and partial scholarships for those of you who are interested with limited funds. Please note, this series is on basic organic vegetable gardening. You must attend all four classes in the series to become a UC Certified Victory Gardener. After the series is over, we will attempt to meet informally to share our gardening experiences and have a chance to ask and answer questions. Limited to 20 people. Spanish translation will also be available. Seeds, seedlings, soil and plastic pots will be provided. For more information, please contact me.

Looking forward to a successful Grow LA Victory Garden Initiative!
