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.
