Center Point Community Education
Imagine making compost in four weeks, never fertilizing, never weeding, never having to add chemicals, never bending over, and hardly ever watering. You may already know Dr. Deb. You may have seen her DVD. You may have read her book "Soiled Rotten", or you may have seen her on Texas Country Reporter where she told Bob Phillips that it takes a dumpster's worth of flattened cardboard to build one keyhole garden. If you don't know Deb or haven't heard of keyhole gardens come on Sept. 17th from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm to learn how to be the best gardener in spite of trying times...using a keyhole garden.
