REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR THE 2023 - 2024 CLASSES!
This is an exciting hands-on learning experience that will teach you how to grow a garden that can provide food and beauty for your family year-round. Students will learn the chemistry of compost, irrigation and nutrition, the botany involved in growing plants, the biology of managing pests in the garden and the knowledge of cultivating plants through the season to harvest. This course is jam packed with interesting and informative lessons that will teach you all about the science of gardening from designing your space to growing strong plants to dealing with weeds, pests and diseases.
For the lab portion of this course, we will design and plant a garden together as we learn all the aspects of what it takes to make it a fruitful and successful project.
Target Level: Grades 6th - 12th grade (Parents are welcome to join)
Teacher: Laura Bruner
I have a doctorate in horticulture from Auburn University. I have taught horticulture classes at Auburn University and most recently Blue Ridge Community College. I own and operate a landscape design business and supervise installation of my landscape designs for clients. Above all, I am continually stuck by awe and wonder at the beauty God created for us to enjoy through plants and our world. I am a curious life long learner because there will not be enough time this side of heaven to learn everything God has created for us to explore in plants, design and beauty.
She has spent years teaching and inspiring others to enjoy plants, gardening and horticulture. She enjoys seeing students’ excitement growing plants and creating beauty in the landscape.
