Online gardening workshops

Each one-hour presentation uses Zoom in full screen mode which is like having a speaker project onto a screen. It includes video, images, and sound as appropriate. There is a question and answer session at the end where participants can ask questions or go over specific points again.
There are three linked presentations covering composting, organic growing and microbed gardening.
