Many of us would like to create more gardening spaces and reduce our lawns, but we dread the back-breaking hard work involved. Good news! The days of digging deep and flipping or cutting turf are over. In this class, Extension Master Gardener Becky Halbe will describe methods she has used on her property and elsewhere to spare her back and quickly and more easily go from grass to a garden filled with flowers, native plants, or vegetables. Becky is also a Virginia Master Naturalist and currently serves on the Board for the Arlington Friends of Urban Agriculture. She grows fruits, vegetables, and native plants and is adept at foraging the local urban wilds.
