A well designed kitchen garden goes beyond simply growing food: it is a way of life that builds natural connections with the landscape to promote well-being.

During the second half of the program, learn to re-think your current design and awaken the artist within to discover fun themes that make gardening more enjoyable and match your personality.  Bring questions about your garden and photos to inspire a conversation among participants about a re-design to make your garden more engaging and productive.

Ideal for gardeners just starting out and experienced gardeners eager to learn how to design a vegetable garden that fits their landscape or how to renovate an existing edible garden to make it easier to maintain and more inviting.
