IVC Farm & Garden to Hold Gardening Workshops

The College of Marin IVC Organic Farm & Garden in Ignacio is set to host The Groundwork of Organic Gardening--a three-part workshop series that will focus on establishing a productive organic garden. 

The workshop will take place on-site at the organic farm, located at 1800 Ignacio Boulevard (College of Marin extension campus), and will run from 10:00am-1:00PM for three Saturdays: Feb. 1, 2014; May 17, 2014; and October 4, 2014.

This informative three-part organic gardening series is designed for beginning and seasoned growers alike. Each session includes classroom instruction and practical teaching held on the thriving COM certified organic farm at the Indian Valley campus, a partnership program with the MMG. Participants may register for individual sessions or for the full series. Class size is limited to 35 participants.

The workshop will cost $30 per class or $75 for the series when you register for all three classes at once.

Karen: Thanks for the great news that an exciting new editor is coming to the Novato Patch soon. Long live the Patch.

Whoever it is, the new editor will need lots of help and cooperation from the community. If we want Patch to survive, we need to consider helping out. We know they will be underpaid and overworked, with only the promise of a better resume when the whole thing ends.

True enough Craig!
