FALL VEGETABLE GARDENING
SAT. 7/20/19 9:30AM - 12:00PM
HOUSTON MUSEUM OF NATURAL SCIENCE
$30

One advantage of living in Houston is how easy it is to grow vegetables in the fall and winter seasons. Think you have no space for a garden? Not to worry, as many of these vegetables can be grown in containers on a sunny patio. You will learn when and where to plant, soil preparation, seed germination and transplanting a long list of vegetables.

Indoor presentation. Class ticket may be used to tour museum permanent exhibits. There are no refunds on classes.
