Explore Organic Vegetable Gardening Series
The term organic has been around for decades, and organic gardening has become increasingly popular with gardeners wanting to lessen their impact on the environment. Organic gardening is more than just not using pesticides and artificial fertilizers; it is building healthy soils and selecting the right plants and seeds. The Organic Vegetable Gardening series of classes listed below will explore these ideas and demonstrate how to apply organic techniques and methods in your own garden. Classes are instructed by Jeffrey Schiller, Scottsdale and Glendale Community College adjunct professor.

Learn the Basics
Why should we garden organically? To answer this question, we will examine the basics of organic gardening and discuss the benefits of working with nature rather than against it. We will explore the adaptability and resilience of plants, and their nutritional and medicinal values. We will also look at genetically modified plants and their role in the environment, and we will cover fruits and vegetables that can be successfully grown in Phoenix.
