Strategies for grilling and cooking outdoors, as well as building meditation gardens will also be covered. The workshop will briefly cover greenhouses, hoop houses, row covers, rainwater harvesting, patios, walkways, decks, outdoor lighting, fencing, and boundary controls. Participants will receive informational handouts, seed catalogs, and a list of local contacts and resources.
