Modern Victory Gardens: Vegetable Gardening Educational Series
When: Saturdays: January 10, March 14, May 30, and November 14, 2009
Time: 9 am to noon; field trip from noon to 2 pm
Cost: $25; $20 for garden members. Registration opens up about two months before each class.

Join a growing trend and learn how to create a bountiful organic community or backyard vegetable garden. We cover hands-on seasonal topics in each class.

The March class will focus on preparation for planting, when and what to plant, planting techniques, feeding and fertilizing, companion planting, and integrated pest control.

The March Victory Gardens Workshop will be held at Texas Discovery Gardens from 9 am to noon. At noon, participants can bring a sack lunch to Lake Highlands Community Garden and enjoy a picnic and meet and greet. This is a great opportunity to see fellow community gardeners and swap gardening tips and stories. It’s a great chance to see a thriving community garden in action. Wear appropriate clothing for an outdoors class.

The Lake Highlands Community Garden is located on City-owned property behind the old armory building located near the intersection of Goforth and White Rock Trail (7901 Goforth Rd. Dallas, TX 75238).
