FEE-BASED NON-CREDIT CLASSESNo homework NO grades. No semester-long commitment. No lengthy online application. Open to all, these non-credit, pay-as-you-go classes are fun and enriching regardless of experience or knowledge level. This spring’s classes include Intro to Floral Design, Aesthetic Pruning, Landscape Sketching, and…we’re hoping to offer the first of our cannabis classes soon…

ALWAYS OPEN FOR ENROLLMENT:
LH501 Urban Community Gardening!
 

Tuesday mornings 9- 10:45am at Merritt Hort Dept. 
Wednesday mornings 9:30- 11:15am at Lakeside Park (use the side entrance to gardens that is across from Nature Center/Bird Dome)
That’s right, LH501 is always open for enrollment, throughout the semester, spring, summer and fall. This zero unit class is a great way to learn all about raised bed vegetable gardening and gardening basics, and all at your own pace. No grades, no commitment, no cost. and is taught by retired (only somewhat, apparently) long-time faculty member/former dept. chair Tom Branca.

EVERYTHING IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE!
Important note about printed schedules

The Peralta-wide schedule of classes is printed far in advance of the semester, and many schedule changes are inevitable. Don’t rely solely on the printed schedule of classes, as it won’t show room, instructor, and day/time changes, canceled classes, or classes that have been ADDED to the schedule!

Stay in-the-know for our dept. by checking here, or by using Peralta’s online Passport searchable schedule of classes, where you will always find the most up-to-date class schedule info for all four Peralta colleges!
