Introduction To Gardening
Taught by Brooklyn Brainery
Brooklyn Brainery hosts affordable classes at our two locations in Brooklyn (190 Underhill Ave in Prospect Heights and 1110 8th Ave in Park Slope), as well as additional events around the borough. We hosted our first classes in 2010 and look forward to hosting many more for years to come.
Plant some plants & cultivate some cultivation!
Whether you're growing things on a Lower East Side balcony, a Bushwick rooftop or in Greenpoint 's oil-slicked soil, we've got something for you. We'll be covering everything from container gardening to full-fledged backyard farms, beginning to end.
We'll start with seeds, sprouts and cuttings, then as Spring moves on we'll get to keeping your grown-up plants feeling healthy and free from pests.
Navigate the mysteries of PROPER DRAINAGE, the esoteric meanderings of the NITROGEN CYCLE, and map the hidden world of MICRONUTRIENTS. We can't promise you tomatoes as big as your head, but that won't stop us from trying!
some places to get excited about the spring: container gardening (from a college, so it must be right), all the heirloom seeds you can dream about, and local farms that are totally awesome--Added Value, Stone Barns, Queens Farm Museum.
