Garden maintenance takes place all year long and timing is critical to certain garden tasks. Each seasonal class offers tips, projects and considerations for activities such as fertilizing, planting, pruning, pest control, planning, clearing and cleaning for gardening year round.

Karen Hurtubise and John Clarke grow ginger and turmeric for market on their farm in Hayesville, N.C. They won first place in the south in Rodale Organic Gardening Magazine in 1984 and remain avid promoters of organic and sustainable agriculture, forest and landscape practices. Clarke recently retired from being the building and grounds director of the John C. Campbell Folk School, where Hurtubise serves as the resident artist in gardening and nature studies. They both teach gardening classes and grow a variety of fruits, vegetables, herbs and native plants. quallaberryfarm.com
