Spring will introduce students to the amazing journey of gardening: starting with planning to planting and then harvest.
Students will learn how to select the best garden location in the landscape, conduct soil testing and understand the importance of and how to improve soil health. Students will germinate their own seeds (indoors and outdoors), learn to schedule the seed starting times and produce their own veggie and annual plant starts.
Additional topics covered will include garden nutrition, pest control options and watering strategies. We will plant both veggies and ornamental flowers with the hope of serving our community with cut flower bouquets to local nursing homes and others.
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.
