WHAT:  The City of Renton and the Saving Water Partnership are offering a free class to provide practical advice on creating and maintaining beautiful, healthy vegetable gardens that are good for you and good for the environment. Growing your own organic food is a fun and delicious way to garden in the Pacific Northwest. Vegetables, berries, and fruit trees need special care to thrive, but your time and energy will pay off with great tasting, nutritious home-grown food. Best of all, food crops can be incorporated into your existing landscape, large or small! This class will teach you how to make your yard produce great food for you and your family.
