Class attendees will learn the skills to start a home vegetable garden -- in a yard or on a patio or balcony in containers.
Classes are led by UC California Cooperative Extension Master Gardener volunteers. Those who complete the four-week program will become UC-Certified Victory Gardeners. Participants will learn by doing at the bountiful LA Green Grounds teaching garden. Join the legions of Angelenos who are growing their own delicious food.
