2019 Garden Guru Program

Mar 20, 2019 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm



Are you a vegetable gardener who has acceptable but not amazing production? Do you wish your soil were more fertile? Do you have garden pests or disease that you haven't been able to identify or eradicate? If you have always wanted to take your gardening to the next level, then this Garden Guru program is just for you.

Join Wasatch Community Gardens' Community Education Director, Marybeth Janerich, this spring for a series of 3 workshops, 2 events, a private consultation in your garden, and more.  The components of this program aim to provide you with the tools you need to improve the productivity and health of your home garden.

Garden Gurus will receive all of the following as part of this program:

  • A garden journal to help you track crops and productivity in your own garden
  • A handy garden tote filled with free seed packs
  • Private group tour of Grateful Tomato Garden for all the Garden Gurus - part of our "Meet and Greet" session in March
  • A two-hour private garden consultation (scheduled between April and September in your garden) ($100 value)
  • Entrance to our much-coveted Plant Sale Pre-Sale event on Friday, May 10th at 7pm ($250 value)
  • Personalized tips for navigating the Plant Sale Pre-Sale
  • Admission to any 3 gardening workshops* in 2019 (excluding the 5-part series; supply fees not included*) ($60+ value)
  • Two seedlings of rare, exciting varieties of tomatoes or peppers grown from seed in our greenhouse (these varieties will NOT be available at our Spring Plant Sale)
  • Entrance to our annual Urban Garden and Farm Tour for you and a friend on Saturday June 23rd ($20 value)
  • And the knowledge and confidence you need to improve productivity in your home garden!

The cost of the entire series is $389.  100% of the proceeds support Wasatch Community Gardens' programs in the community.  No discounts or scholarships available for the Garden Guru Program.
