  • How does virtual camp work?

    It's a mix of formal instruction about growing veggies in containers, along with questions and discussion about different situations and options.

  • How do I access the camp gatherings?

    Camp gatherings take place on Zoom. Once you enroll in the camp, you get the meeting links.

  • Will I have a chance to ask my own questions?

    It's called "camp" because there's lots of time to ask questions. It not just an online lecture.
