Come learn how you can grow herbs, flowers, and vegetables in smaller areas like side yards or decks. Raised beds allow you to grow in areas with poor soils or in a variety of containers. Square foot gardens show what you can grow in a single square foot using a special soil blend. Gardening in straw bales will give you a built-in medium that can be located and relocated from year to year anywhere you have a sunny location.

Master Gardeners will share the pros and cons of these small space gardening solutions.
