Focused seasonal home farming, even on a small scale, is a bolster to your personal economy. A backyard garden can easily save $1,000 or more in annual food costs. By following nature’s lead, our gardens can yield vegetables, culinary herbs, fruits, berries, cut flowers and more. In this class, PETER ANDERSON, an organic gardener and ecology activist, will discuss practical means and methods utilized to create fertile, sustainable, cost-efficient food plots yielding nutritionally dense, high quality, organic produce. Participants will learn how a typical Nashville yard can better support a household AND wildlife, providing sanctuary for birds, improved water quality, minimized rainwater run-off, among other “tips” to reduce your impact on the environment while getting delicious homegrown food in return.
