You will enjoy your garden more when you know it is a safe and environmentally friendly place. Our Organic Gardening class will focus on sustainable growing methods for both vegetable and ornamental gardens. Billy Ray Askew, Agriculture Technology Instructor at BCCC, will lead you to a new understanding of soil health and nutrition. Learn about composting, mulching, growing cover crops, managing pests, making square foot gardens, and making hay bale gardens. Billy Ray will lead the class to start vegetables and ornamentals from seed in our greenhouse. You will finish the class with plants to take home for your own garden. For Spring 2018, we have added three sessions. Judy Keohane of Beaufort County Master Gardeners will lead a workshop on the importance of pollinators and how to encourage them. Bill Booth will help you create a bucket garden to carry home. And Clay Carter will spend an evening focused on vegetative propagation at home and organic rose care.
