This hands-on course will teach you the practical skills needed to work with a wide variety of plants. You will learn to identify a number of wild and cultivated plants. Basic plant theory will help you understand the relationships between them and how this knowledge can be useful in gardening and ecology. We will go through the theory and practice of several propagation techniques that can help you save money and produce healthy and productive plants. There will also be demonstrations of pruning and grafting techniques.
