Market and Homestead Gardening 101
Whether it's a tiny backyard or a huge field, we believe that everyone can grow food for cash or calories. We created this class to help you realize the ultimate potential of your growing space as well as show some strategies to minimize waste and maximize profit. Join Tommie and Michael at 10am on July 17th for this introduction to market and homestead gardening!
Companion landscape plants for the home garden
Gardeners often think about companion planting within their vegetable garden, but how about nearby landscape plants that surround your home? Ideally, we can create an ecosystem with the landscape plants around our homes that will support our vegetable garden by attracting and housing beneficial insects and pollinators. In this class we will focus on landscape plants for the desert that attract these beneficial insects to aid you with pest control, and while we are at it, butterflies and hummingbirds too! Join Michael at 10am on July 31st for this great ecosystem building class!
In Your Garden
One-on-One educational gardening sessions in your own backyard.
What better way to learn about maintaining an edible garden than working in your own with an expert? If you're interested in growing your own food but doubtful of your ability to be successful on your own, we would love to work with you and teach you all that we know of how to grow food in the desert. Invite a Thrive gardener out to your residence for a one-on-one educational gardening session where you will learn about the intricate details of edible gardening, tuned specifically to your space, the plants you're growing and your personal horticultural preferences.
You can also sign up for weekly or monthly sessions with a Thrive gardener and we'll be sure to keep you and your garden on track. With all there is to know about edible gardening, this education is highly valuable and recommended for novice gardeners.
