Here it is â€“ a countdown til spring. From now until the first day of spring, I will post ways to make the dreary days of midwinter a little more merry.
Day 21: Take a gardening class.
This is the best time to learn something new. Put your pent-up gardening energy into learning some new skills for your garden this spring. I’m enrolled in a 10-hour beekeeping class through the Puget Sound Beekeepers’ Association. I may not be able to start my own hive this year, but I’ll be able to learn some new skills and get my beekeeping fix in this class and at the association’s apiary work parties. I can hardly wait!
Here are some classes that have caught my eye:
- Urban Weeds and Wild Foods: Identify and HarvestÂ (Less talk! More forage!)
- Pollinate with Native Bees (fun with Mason bees!)
- Northwest Horticultural Lectures
Spots are filling up fast for my upcoming Spring Fling! In fact, March 30th is almost sold out! There are two more spots available that day and a few more on Sunday, April 7th! Sign up and bring a friend! There are even a few mother-daughter garden nerds that are coming! I wish my mom could be at my class! Love!
