Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) is offering a free, step-by-step online class that’s open to the public to show how to transform a piece of lawn into a food-producing plot. Engage in some self-care; grow some food; and engage kids in gardening during this extra at-home time.
“I wanted to help,” said Valerie Dantoin, an organic agriculture instructor at NWTC. “We are going to do something called square-foot gardening, where you can actually grow all your family’s own vegetables in a really small backyard.”
Class participants will plan and create small backyard gardens with quick, easy lessons that they can access anytime each week. Classes will be held April 22 – May 20. To register and find out more, visit nwtc.edu/events/2020/april/free-backyard-organic-gardens-for-beginners.
