Class – Backyard Food Security 

Here’s a crash course in growing food at home. We’ll go over:

  • The difference between annuals and perennials,
  • Which fruit trees and plants you should grow from cuttings or from a friend,
  • Trees you should purchase grafted from a reputable nursery,
  • How to prepare your soil for these different plants, and
  • Location and growing needs including containers.

Whether you’re pursuing a goal to be more sustainable, worried about the food supply or trying to reduce your grocery bill, this class will give you a quick glimpse to get you started. It’s designed for beginner to intermediate gardeners who have goals to grow a good amount of their own food at home.

Participants will have an option to purchase a “starter kit” of 10 cuttings, seeds, and small plants for $20 and receive 10% off edible plants the day of the course including fruit trees, veggies, herbs, and seeds. You’ll also have the option to schedule a home consultation with us for $25 off in Pinellas County.

This class will be taught by Amanda, owner of Living Roots. She’s a certified permaculture designer, certified Florida Friendly Landscaper, and lifelong gardener. Amanda grew up on a working farm growing all her family’s food, homestead style. She’s spent 20 years translating that into Florida’s urban/suburban subtropical growing seasons.

We’re looking forward to helping you on this journey!
