You will learn the basics including the advantages of no weeding, reduced insects and pests, faster growth, higher fruit and vegetable yields, and reduced maintenance costs. You will also learn about growing in soil vs. a hydroponic environment. You will also learn about different growing mediums, and systems and what options are available to you. You are sure to enjoy learning about this new, but not so common crop cultivation technique.

This signature course in our Home and Garden series will focus on designing your own landscape and planning your project out. This course will teach you basic landscape architecture and how it plays a large part in our everyday life. The course will cover plant materials and how to best use them in your design and teach you quick yard fixes. "This is a workshop class; the last class will be a walk on campus". 

Raised bed gardening has recently become popular for many reasons. Raised beds help extend your growing season and can help relieve the amount of bending and pressure on your back.

There’s nothing safe about a good story. Not if it’s a living thing. Not if it snaps off the page and bites you. Stories were never meant to be docile things. Just sitting there. Just twiddling their thumbs. A good story – a great one, even – will affect you physically. Your heart will pound. Or swell. Your mouth will whimper. Your throat will tighten. You’ll laugh so loud and unexpectedly the reaction will scare you. You’ll feel. You’ll be lost. You’ll enter a mysterious world and fight to ever be forced out again. Now, that’s a good story. But how do we make our stories come alive like that? How do we make them breathe and gasp and make our readers wiggle with discomfort or satisfaction? How do we become a writer with that kind of force? How? We sharpen all the writer’s tools – some known, some secret – until a little blood is left on the edges. Are you game?

The horizon is calling. There’s a story to tell out there. A story of loss and love, war and victory, comical mishaps, and brutally unfunny lessons. And, that story is yours. You’ve been gathering experiences and knowledge and wisdom like precious glittery stones stuffed into a velvet bag and secreted away into the lockbox. It’s time to put them on display. Your stories could have an impact on the lives around you far beyond what you can imagine, as well as an impact on the lives yet to come. There are treasured insights there. And priceless intuition. Don’t keep it hidden. Tell your story. Now is the time. In these writing classes, you’ll get all the tools you need for the journey and insight on how to make this your grandest escapade, yet.

The silent killer attacking your time and sabotaging your potential could be as innocent as the words you type. Written communication in business is bottomless. Your communication with clients/customers/co-workers is frequently through email. Your work is generally outlined in reports. Your sales pitches are often given through presentations and proposals. Your successes, findings, requests, and recommendations, all eventually end up in black and white. But, are you seeing the results you want? Or do you dread it when another writing project hits your desk? Be confident, prepared, and in control of your written communication by bringing your words into focus. It’s easier than you think. All you need are a few simple-to-learn, easy-to-execute writing guidelines to streamline your time and increase understanding between you and your intended audience.
