Join Vista Brewing's Farmer Noël for a series of seven gardening classes, applicable to beginner gardeners and experienced farmers. Class will meet once a month on the fourth Saturday from January through July, with topics progressing through the growing season. [Note: May's class will be the 3rd Saturday to avoid Memorial Day weekend.]
Noël is a passionate and experienced farmer who grew up in a farming and foodie family and brings her knowledge and passion for sustainable farming to Vista. She is responsible for the planning and production of vegetables, herbs and flowers in the Vista Farm, from the soil to the kitchen. You'll find her sharing her wealth of scientific knowledge of soil fertility through these classes and each week at or booth at the Dripping Springs Farmer's Market. Follow along her adventures on Instagram @familyfarmer.
Each class will spend 30 minutes in a classroom-style presentation and 90 minutes learning and working in the garden. Your ticket includes the class and one beer or non-alcoholic beverage after class.
- Individual class: $35
- Full Series of 7 classes: $210 (essentially one free class!)
