Her slide presentation will demonstrate growing crops in raised beds or in the ground. She will fill you with tips, hints, garden timing, new techniques, and old-time secrets culled from a lifetime of growing edible crops.

I myself know that teachers and books are a viable two-way approach to gardening.
