Are you new to Tucson or new to gardening here? Our monthly Signature Classes will help unravel the mysteries of gardening in the Sonoran Desert. You will gain a basic understanding of the local climate, soil, water and plants, and you’ll take home tips to help your own garden thrive. Signature Classes are offered every month, and no preregistration is required. Whenever you’re ready to dive in and get to know your backyard desert landscape, drop in for a class–or the whole series.
