Aaron is a professional carpenter, home gardener, and current Chair of the MakeICT Garden Committee. In this course you will be building raised beds for the MakeICT Garden, discussing alternative construction methods, and going into detail about the benefits of raised beds and how to use them. Those taking the class will have access to the bed they help construct throughout the 2021 Growing season!

A big part of our mission in the garden committee is education. Toward this end children may attend with guardian, but please consider that this a long class, that participants will be expected to get their hands dirty (possibly muddy!), and there will be some power equipment used and children may at times need to keep a safe distance. Appropriate supervision will be expected at all times.

Aaron will be donating the entirety of his portion of proceeds from this class to the Garden committee specifically to help support improvements to the vegetable garden and the construction of additional raised beds.
