The class will give practical guides on how to grow your vegetables within unused space in your compound and even in plastic or metal containers for there are some things you don't need to always buy in the shopping malls. You will be taught how to make your nursery with seeds like cabbage, lettuce, spinach, potatoes (both Irish and sweet), green beans. These will be organic farming using compost and animal dungs. There will also be brief awareness about the importance of plants to our well-being as humans especially trees, locating some texts in the bible to support this enlightenment. Participants are encouraged to bring along with them small plastic containers (at least 2 each) and some seedlings of chili, green pepper, lettuce or cabbage for the class demonstration. Bring your garden boots and gloves. It will be fun because there will be no competition for us to get the best farmer of the year.

Bring one of the following:
Any small quantity of seedlings, e.g. onions and cabbage, green beans, two pieces of irish potatoes.
Help setting up before the class, and helping clear up afterwards
Juice to share with the class
pears, grape, oranges, avocados or apples are also welcome to be shared after the class
