Participants will learn about gardening in tight spaces – such as growing herbs and veggies on balconies – basic gardening principles, how to grow herbs, vegetable or fruit trees; and maintenance that includes information on pest management and harvesting.
The classes, which take place from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., are led by Maryellen Bell of Scenic Earth Inc. at the Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center, 24932 Veterans Way.
