Learn to Garden at Ft. Totten Community Garden This Summer

  The Neighborhood Farm Initiative (NFI) has opened enrollment to their summer Adult Gardening Education Program.  This program is designed to help teach adults the basics of organic gardening, focusing on the ins and outs of growing your own vegetables.  More importantly it is taking place right in our own back yard at the NFI Garden behind the Ft. Totten Metro.  The class runs from May through early September, and is broken up into 11 weekly instructional "hands on" classes with experts.  You will also get
your own 12' x 12' community garden plot, seeds and transplants, access to the necessary garden infrastructure (i.e. drip irrigation system, trellises, stakes, tomato cages), and more. 
  The class cost $450, but when you consider all you need to do is show up and everything else is provided for you it seems like a great deal!  Details can be found here:
