Throughout the course of the winter, Urban Roots Garden Center offers a delightful array of gardening opportunities. These seminars and workshops are prefect for those who want to gather some additional garden knowhow, so that they can be prepared to dig in when the snow melts.
By taking the time to learn more about the art of gardening during the cold months, the rewards will be even greater come spring. And some of the classes can be put to good use right away by getting the planting season off to a good start indoors!
All of these winter/spring events are free.
You will need to register for classes, as space is limited (see below).
