WVU plans class in organic gardening

Organic gardening is a knowledge-intensive, ecologically friendly and delicious approach to growing your own food; however, careful planning is required. WVU will help with that planning by offering a new course, "Planning and Planting Your Organic Garden."
The one-credit-hour course, taught by James Kotcon, associate professor of plant pathology in WVU's Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design, will help students learn about organic certification procedures, soil fertility and pest management with hands-on planning and applications.
Course sessions will be from 6 - 8:45pm Thursdays, March 25 through May 6, in 1030 South Agricultural Sciences Building on WVU's Evansdale Campus.
Enrollment is limited to 40 students. Info: Kotcon at 304-293-8822 or jkotcon@wvu.edu.
