Friends, join me for an excellent introductory gardening class this Saturday, April 4, from 9:00am to 12:30am, at the Aransas County Extension office in Rockport.

This class, called “Dig It! The DIY of Gardening”, is designed for beginners, but even expert gardeners will benefit from this information.  The class will be led by several wonderful master gardeners, some of the leading plant experts in our area, and I will also lead part of the class.  Your instructors will teach you everything you need to know to start your own garden, and answer all your gardening questions!

The first of two classes is this Saturday, April 4, at 9:00am, in the air-conditioned  indoor classroom at the Agri-Life office.  This class will focus on the basics:  building healthy soil, using tools, selecting plants, and keeping them growing.
