Advanced gardening

If you want to learn how to make your garden more productive with less work, this is the course for you! In each lesson, we’ll uncover a new gardening technique for you to try that focuses on building efficient garden systems, which will leave you more time to enjoy the fruits—and vegetables—of your labors. While this course does build on material from the Beginning Gardening class, you don’t need to have taken it to enjoy this one. Over the next ten days, we’ll dig deep into gardening, covering plant guilds, hugelkultur, cover crops, crop rotation, wide row gardening, square foot gardening, vermicomposting, greenhouses, and seed saving!
