The WSU King County Master Gardener Program announces its third season of Growing Groceries classes. All classes are offered to the general public and are ideal for the beginner to intermediate home gardener.

Classes will cover the major groups of vegetables and cultural strategies—from the principles of vegetable gardening in our maritime climate to the basics of soil preparation, garden design, variety selection, cultural requirements, major diseases and pests, pest management techniques, and harvesting strategies.

This series of 12 classes will help you learn essential gardening practices to grow your own healthy food. Classes focus on gardening practices based on current science, and appropriate for our environment.  Class content is taught at the appropriate time of year when it can be immediately applied in the garden. You must register for each class individually.

Instructors for these classes will be WSU King County Master Gardeners.

Instructions for joining the Zoom classes will be sent to registrants at 5:00 PM the date of the class. Classes will be held on Wednesdays and begin at 7:00 PM on the Zoom platform. You must register for each class separately. There is a minimum suggested donation of $5 for each class.

Details about each class with links to register for other classes are found on the Growing Groceries web page at https://www.mgfkc.org/education/growinggroceries.
