Northwoods Gardening

Learn how to make the most out of our short Northern gardening season while implementing sustainable practices. The classes will be held at Andy Hill’s property where he will demonstrate organic procedures, drip irrigation, weed suppression, protection from critters, and methods of fertilizing without using pesticides or herbicides.

You’ll learn how to construct and set up a grow house as well as a conventional space using salvaged materials with no treated lumber. Come prepared to get your hands dirty as you learn how to prepare, develop and harvest your garden. Bring a notebook and/or camera as well as your own ideas and enthusiasm to share with others. The class will also receive a 50’ row to plant seeds of their choice and harvest their bounty.

About the Instructor: Andy Hill has been implementing creative sustainable practices in his off-the-grid homestead and garden for many years and loves to share ideas and knowledge with others. He promises there will be no secrets! He teaches our Sustainable Living classes including the basics of photo voltaic solar panels and has installed several systems in the Ely area. Student reviews of Andy’s classes are always positive.
