DPR Basics of Urban Growing Webinar Series

Now more than ever people are understanding the importance of growing our own food. That’s why during this time of social distancing DC Parks and Rec (DPR) has created the FREE DPR Basics of Urban Growing Webinar Series for first time gardeners. This course is (2) 2-hour long webinars covering the basics of gardening only. These presentations were created by grabbing only the slides from the DPR Urban Grower Webinar Course needed to grow a basic garden. (FYI If you have taken the DPR Urban Grower Webinar Course there may not be much new information) We removed all the higher skill level information so beginner gardeners can just focus on the basics and not feel overwhelmed.
