About the event

Virtual class with the Tilth Alliance and the Garden Hotline. 

Not  sure you have enough space for a garden? You don't need a yard to grow  your own food! Be creative with container gardening and you can grow  greens, herbs, blueberries, and even hot peppers. Container gardening is  great for beginners, apartment dwellers and anyone with challenging  soil.

In this class you will learn about: • Benefits of growing in containers • Choosing soil, containers and location for your container garden • Considerations for growing herbs, greens, small fruits and summer vegetables • Ongoing maintenance of your container garden

This  virtual class will feature a live, interactive lecture with slide show,  and time for questions and answers with the  instructor. We will be  using Zoom for this class, which you can use on your computer or phone.

This program was made possible with funding support from the Washington State Department of Ecology, the United States Environmental Protection Agency, and King County Solid Waste Division.

Julia  Buscemi received a BS in Environmental Science and Management from  University of California Davis in 2021, with an emphasis on  biodiversity, ecology, and  conservation. Studying sustainable food systems in a city surrounded by  so much agriculture inspired a passion for gardening and farm  education. After moving to Seattle, Julia worked as a baker at The Flora  Bakehouse, slinging delicious pastries baked with  produce grown by local Washington farmers. Feeling inspired by the  local food system in Seattle, Julia began her career in garden education  at Oxbow Farm and Conservation center as an environmental educator.  Working with children ages 3-11, she spent the summer  teaching all about the power and beauty of growing your own food. Julia  is now a Program Coordinator for the Garden Hotline and loves to cook,  knit, and explore the outdoors in her free time.
