New to Gardening in Maine

$38

with John Fromer, Mid-Coast School of Technology Adult Education

Calendar Jul 12, 2022 at 10 am, runs for 1 week

Maine can be a challenging place to garden. Our season is short. Our soil is questionable. If we didn’t have rocks, we wouldn’t have anything to stand on! Still, Maine is a wonderful place to garden. Come to this class to learn what we can grow and when, where many resources are, how to get a soil test and what gardening by the sea is like. Learn about our native plants, weather cycles, soils, pests, and local resources. It will be a good place to start!

Folk Style & Clawhammer Ukulele

$39

with Duncan Perry, MSAD#1 Adult & Community Education

Calendar Jul 12, 2022 at 6 pm, runs for 2 weeks

Do you love folk and country music? Then you need to learn a thing or two about how to play it! Discover up-picking, a technique used by Pete Seeger and other folk greats as well as the popular down-picking style, known variously as clawhammer or frailing. Along the way you'll get the basics of reading tablature, a system of notating finger positioning and techniques to enhance your playing. You don't need a banjo ukulele to learn these styles (but it's fun to have one). What you do need is a playable ukulele tuned to GCEA, an iPad or computer capable of using Zoom, basic knowledge of how to play the ukulele including the ability to make smooth and seamless transitions between, at least, the C, F, Am, and G7 chords.
