Having Trouble With Starting Your Garden? There’s a Class for That

It’s time to get rid of your black thumb.

Getting into gardening can be overwhelming. Walk into any bookstore and check out their garden section and you’ll soon realize that you’re not the only one with questions. Just where should you put that basil so that it gets the best light? When should you start your tomato seedlings? What kind of soil should you buy? Can someone just give us step-by-step instructions? The answers to the first three may vary, but the answer to the fourth is, yes.

Mike Lieberman, who runs our own EcoSalon series Urban Gardener, is launching an online gardening course, Fall Gardening 101. It’s all for getting rid of your black thumb and ensuring that gardening isn’t so overwhelming, so that you can be producing your own food, hassle free.

From planning your space to caring for seedlings, Lieberman will cover all the topics that beginner gardeners have. And you’ll be able to get them answered all in one place, which means you can spend less time Googling and more time planting.
