iPad surrounded by gardening tools and soil

Home and vegetable gardening have become increasingly important in 2020. Whether you are just starting or expanding your planting prowess, our Home Gardeners School @Home Edition is here to help!

With the goal of helping all gardeners learn new skills in a fun, friendly, interactive setting while remaining safely in their homes, we asked several instructors from our annual Home Gardeners School event to present their workshops in an online format. Each workshop is one hour long and provides practical content from gardening experts who want to help you make 2020 your best gardening year yet! You will have the opportunity to ask the instructor questions using the course chat feature. Plus, you will leave each workshop with a digital resource packet that will include helpful items such as fact sheets, checklists, and/or lists of other resources that you will be able to refer to throughout your gardening future.

Below is a list of our upcoming Home Gardeners School @Home workshops. More great options are coming soon! Please join our mailing list to be notified as soon as we announce new online courses.

Accessing Our Online Workshops (It's Easier Than You Think!)

Once you've registered for a course, you will receive a link via email 24 hours before the start of the course. Simply click that link and follow the prompts to allow Webex on your computer, tablet, or iPhone. No microphones or webcams are necessary. If you do not have a microphone on your computer, you will have the option to dial in using a regular telephone to hear the course audio while viewing the course visuals on your device.

New to online learning? No problem! We will be sending out a document with helpful how-to tips for using Webex to all registrants the day before the course. Plus, you can join the class 15 minutes early to get comfortable with the platform and see how you can utilize the chat feature to ask questions throughout the course.
