Wylde Farm Series: Mapping Your Site + Garden Tools 101
March 8 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Students will learn how to map out their own growing sites while working alongside Farmer Emily at one of Wylde Center’s farms. Students will learn about different tools they can use to map out their own garden and site keeping considerations in mind including sun, access, and slope.
Speaking of tools, Farmer Emily will also show examples of tools that make farming and gardening easier on the body and time efficient. Students will learn how to use the tools properly and how to make sure they stay well maintained.
And to celebrate that spring is finally here, students will plant one of the beds they prepared with Farmer Emily.
This workshop will include the following topics:

- Site considerations- sun, access, slope, etc.
- Measuring and marking out growing beds

New for 2020, Wylde Center is offering weekend programs each month that will cover the basics of gardening and farming in Georgia. Each workshop will feature both a lecture and hands-on portion. We have designed our workshops based upon our actual farm schedule so you can get a real feel for the seasons and develop your own farm or garden site simultaneously. During the hands-on part of the class, participants will receive instruction as we work together to complete a seasonal project relevant to the lesson at one of our 3 farm sites.
