Sunlit walls and fences can be an ideal location to grow vegetables and herbs, even in high density areas. Learn which vertical gardening methods are most suitable for edibles, while taking into consideration challenges with sun, wind, soil and irrigation. Discover some of the most suitable types and combinations of vegetables and herbs for your location and taste. Yael will demonstrate how to plant a garden using a recycled wood pallet that can be mounted to a wall or fence. The planted pallet will be available for purchase by donation (min. $40). All proceeds go back into garden programming.

Member $40.50 / Non-member $45 (taxes included)
