Imagine the satisfaction of harvesting fresh, pesticide-free produce for your loved ones, all while connecting with nature and promoting a sustainable lifestyle.

During our session, experienced volunteers will guide you through the ins and outs of outdoor plant care, sharing their expertise and invaluable tips for cultivating thriving gardens. You'll learn about the essential elements of soil preparation, watering techniques, pest management, and effective plant nutrition to ensure your green companions flourish in every season.
