(for the Janaury TWATL) If you have always wanted to know how to grow your vegetables and plants organically, this is your chance to learn … both in the classroom and “in-the-soil”. Georgia Southern University is sponsoring this comprehensive six-week program that will take place in the classroom at Skidaway Methodist Church and in the soil at Skidaway Farms.
