Description: Want to get the most out of your garden this year? Vancouver’s climate is perfect for getting the most out of your garden growing in the spring and fall ‘shoulder’ seasons. Learn how to choose cool season varieties, when to plant them, and how to take advantage of urban microclimates to keep your garden thriving all year long. Students will learn various season extension techniques, and will get hands-on experience building a cold frame in class.
