Organic Gardening CityEast College

Course Outline

Organic growing is a matter of putting first things first, we start with building a healthy, nourishing soil for our home or balcony garden, then propagating our plants, planting them into our nourishing soil, watering them, protecting them from voracious vegetarian insect pests, and watching them grow.

Permaculture in the garden is organic gardening + design, and that’s just what we will learn to create productive small gardens that produce flourishing and tasty plants that nourish mind and body.
