During the World Wars, communities came together to grow Victory Gardens.Today, we are facing a very different kind of global war -- one that calls us to stay at home instead of fighting overseas. However, there is still much that we can learn and do during our time in quarantine. Inspired by the historic efforts of the Victory Gardeners, Ontario County CCE is launching Just Plant It: COVID-19 Victory Gardens course. We want to empower our community to learn how to grow their own food and share it with others in the community. This course provides participants with step-by-step instruction about how to start and manage a small garden. This course is open to anyone, and participants will have access to course material and the option to have questions answered by Home and Grounds Educator Russell Welser.
This course explores all the major methods of plant propagation.
What is Organic Gardening? This course is intended to examine the basics of small-scale organic gardening. The topics and depth of information offered will help new gardeners learn the basics and feel comfortable getting started, while also offer more experienced gardeners the opportunity to expand their knowledge base. This course may not be ideal for very experienced organic gardeners.
