If you live in the Bay Area, chances are your options for big backyard gardens can be fairly limited! We have the perfect solution... In this class, led by professional gardener Tory Van Wey, you will learn how to BUILD and FILL your own vertical succulent garden! In the first part of class, you will get comfortable with simple tools (drill, screwdriver, and screws... just the basics) and assemble your wooden garden box from pre-cut wood pieces. Next, you will learn the proper method for filling your vertical garden with soil and succulents. Last, Tory will share her urban gardening wisdom so you can keep these mounted gardens alive and thriving! You will leave with one wooden vertical succulent garden that is ready to hang. Plus, we are big fans of revealing all of our tricks, so you will learn how to make more of these rad boxes of green magic on a budget.
Tory Van Wey was first bitten by the gardening bug at the age of six, when her mother showed her how to make and tend a backyard vegetable patch. As an impatient kid, she learned how to make a mean fried green tomato. Her passion for gardening grew to encompass sustainable agriculture, permaculture, and mycology, with a recent turn towards sustainable urban gardening. Tory is also a freelance illustrator with a BA in Graphic Design from Loyola Marymount University, whose work is heavily influenced by the natural world and her time in the garden.
