Join Master Gardener, Mary Hines, at the Oakhurst Community Garden and learn how to grow herbs and vegetables in containers. The lecture covers choosing the best containers and soil mixtures; selecting ideal vegetables, herbs and flowers for container growing; making visually stunning arrangements; and the basics of proper light, water, fertilizer, and pest control with an emphasis on organic methods. All students will take home a planted container. You bring the container of your choice (3 to 5 gallons; about 12″ wide and deep), and we’ll provide soil mix and plants from our veggie sale. A great way to make a mother’s day present! 5 person min. Advance registration required. Register ONLINE at www.oakhurstgarden.org. Click on classes.
