Organic gardening is a knowledge-intensive, ecologically friendly and delicious approach to growing your own food, but careful planning is required. West Virginia University will help with that planning by offering a new course, “Planning and Planting Your Organic Garden.”
The one-credit-hour course will help students learn about organic certification procedures, soil fertility, and pest management with hands-on planning and applications. It will be taught by James Kotcon, associate professor of plant pathology in WVU’s Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design.
Course sessions will be held from 6:00 to 8:45 p.m. Thursdays, March 25 through May 6, in 1030 South Agricultural Sciences Building on WVU’s Evansdale Campus.
Enrollment is limited to 40 students. For more information, contact Kotcon at 304-293-8822 or email@example.com.
