This series of workshops takes a broad view of what it means to garden. Whether you consider yourself a backyard gardener, a forager, a farmer, or a steward of the land, the Garden Series will have something for you. From formal garden design to identifying and learning to use wild growing plants, we span a range of techniques and philosophies. Because of the range of subjects covered, these classes can be enjoyed by new and experienced gardeners alike.

Now, in the depths of winter, is the time to start thinking about your vegetable garden. Claire Hitchcock Tilton will teach you how to choose plants for continuous harvest from spring to late fall. Topics include choosing plants for your specific site, care requirements for different plants, companion planting (pairing plants that work together for mutual benefit), plant rotation, and seed collection. You will develop a master plan for your garden that includes a list of what to plant and when, and you will be ready to place your seed orders with confidence. Bring your seed catalogues, questions, and ideas.
