Plant basil or carrots by your tomatoes for a better harvest and better tasting tomatoes, but don’t plant anything in the onion family near your peas or you will stunt their growth! Sounds crazy but it’s true. Gardeners and farmers have known this for hundreds of years. The proper layout of your garden patch will greatly enhance its productivity and taste. Knowing what to plant next after harvesting one type of vegetable in your garden is just as crucial. Each plant variety has different requirements. This course will teach you how to successfully do both for a productive and disease and pest resistant garden. Materials will be mailed to students prior to class.  Instructor: DONALD J.

SPROUTS, MICROGREENS & BABY GREENS                    FEE: $75

Wednesday 7-9:30 pm (1 sess. Mar. 24)                                      Virtual

Together we’ll explore the differences between sprouts, microgreens and baby greens and how to grow all of them year-round in your home. Sprouts have very important health properties due to their high levels of nutrients and enzymes, which give our body valuable energy to detox and strengthen our immune system. Broccoli sprouts contain 20 to 50 times more nutrients than mature broccoli and have sulfora- phane, a powerful anti-cancer compound that helps fight and reduce the risk of developing cancer.  We will also discuss the benefits of growing and juicing wheat grass which is another powerhouse for good health. Join us for a fun-filled evening of tips for living a healthier life.  Each student will receive a tray of organic broccoli sprouts to take home.  Trays will be available for pick up at Midland Park High School prior to this class.   Instructor: DONALD J. KANARR
