Upcoming Gardening Class in Prescott, AZ
Last Updated on
One of the best parts about living in Prescott is the privilege of enjoying outdoor activities year round! Gardening is one way to exercise, eat quality foods, and get outside to enjoy our Arizona sunshine. If you’re thinking of planting a garden, now is the time for planning what and where you’ll plant, and how much to plant. If you’re not an experienced gardener, or if you’re a gardener new to Northern Arizona soil, there’s a wonderful gardening class being offered by Ken Davis of Watters Garden Center. At Prescott Dentistry, we love community events local to Prescott, and especially those that foster healthy outdoor living for our community’s residents.
What: Gardening 101 is offered by Ken Davis, who will instruct students on how to plant and grow a garden in Prescott. The class is open to all ages and will instruct students on how to plant their gardens from start to finish. The class will discuss soil preparation, watering, and fertilizing the soil. Gardening 101 is intended to help its students with their own gardens, so they can get the most blooms and growth out of their plants. Each student will leave the class knowing exactly how to plant a fruitful, long-lasting garden!
Where: Watters Garden Center, 1815 W Iron Springs Rd., Prescott, AZ 86305
When: February 17, 2018 from 9:30 AM to 10:30 AM
Cost: The class is free to the public, but the first ten students to bring along $10 plus a soil sample will receive a pH analysis of their soil, very helpful information for understanding how to build soil health in your garden.
The fruits and vegetables grown in your own garden are beneficial to health, and can even help prevent colds and the flu! And vegetables and fruits make perfect snacks that are much better for our teeth than the many sugary treats available as highly processed foods.
Being a part of the community of Prescott means there’s always plenty to do and plenty to learn! Our staff at Prescott Dentistry recommends taking advantage of the many free events offered around the Prescott region, for your health and for your enjoyment.
