Teaches: Urban Community Gardening

My educational pursuits began after serving four years in the Navy during the Vietnam War. Upon being discharged I attended Laney College where after 3 years I earned an AS degree in computer science/data processing. During my last semester there I was introduced to the wonderful world of plants so I continued my education at Cal State Hayward in the Biology Dept. Another year and then I transferred to UC Berkeley where I received my BS in Botany. Into the world as a grower at a local wholesale nursery soon sent me back to school to continue graduate studies in horticulture at UC Davis. I graduated UC Davis in June of 1980 and was hired by the Landscape Horticulture Dept. at Merritt College. After a wonderful 32 years I retired but continue to teach the Urban Community Gardening Class, LH501. So if you’d like a stress free wonderful class on Urban Vegetable Gardening, this is the class for you and it is FREE!
