  1. I don’t believe that there is a cost for this. The people I have spoken to that have taken this course in past years rave about it. The best way to find out more info is to call the phone number listed in the post. I will be attending with my wife, so I’ll try to take notes and post up information learned at the class.

  3. I just found out that this course is being offered in four locations throughout the valley:

    Payson West Stake Center Chapel
    780 West 500 South, Payson

    Sunset Heights State Center Chapel
    1260 South 400 West, Orem

    Heritage Building
    1600 North Main, Mapleton

    Jordan River Statke Center Chapel
    2161 West 300 South, Lehi

    I attended the opening course today and learned a lot. There is no fee. He does start with the basics, so if you are a veteran gardner you might be bored, but the instructor is very knowledgeable and experienced and I learned several things in just this first week.
