Whether you are a novice to the wonderful world of horticulture or a gardening guru, Jenna Bayer’s Garden Bootcamp is a fun and interactive way to help make your garden dreams come true.

 

We have many seasonally appropriate classes to choose from. All classes (except Special Forces) are held at Rosemound Farm in Hillsboro from 9am to 1pm. Each class begins with 45 minutes of gardening basics followed by hands-on field labs, a tour of Jenna’s garden to illustrate concepts covered in class and a take-home project/planter. 

 

We are also happy to work by appointment. We encourage groups of 4-8. We can come to you, or you to us. Tuesday-Thursday in the Bay area or Friday-Monday in the Portland area.
