This comes to us from Lori Day of CPCC:
Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) in Charlotte is offering three summer courses of particular interest to our group.
The first begins May 14, “Organic Gardening for the Summer Season” and is a fundamentals course on improving the soil, weed control and growing vegetables organically. We’ll work in a community garden for hands-on learning fun.
The second course starts June 22 on “Planning Your Own Home Landscape Design,” so that folks can think about landscaping with drought-tolerant plants, natives and (gasp!) edibles.
The third begins August 8 and will help people (especially urbanites) learn how to preserve the summer’s bounty. The course is “The Art of Home Canning.”
