The Garden of Eatin: Free Vegetable Gardening Classes at the Yellow Green Market

You probably already know, but it's Slow Foods week, a celebration of all things locally grown. While we love the idea of eating at farm-to-table restaurants and buying from local producers, you couldn't get much closer than your own backyard.

No, we mean literally.

Karin Fields -- a.k.a. the Edible Gardening Gal -- wants to teach you how to grow your own food. This Saturday, she will be hosting two free classes at the Yellow Green Farmer's Market's new Garden of Eatin. Details after the jump.

There's good news for wannabe plant whisperers and budding locavores in Lake Worth (or anyone, really, who may be grossed out by the latest round of fruit and vegetable recalls involving seemingly innocuous food items). Gray Mockingbird Community Garden in Lake Worth will open on Saturday, September 15, with a community service day that is open to anyone interested in participating in the garden. In fact, planting already has begun, in case you want to get a jump on the fall.
