Instructor: CELIA BELL


Celia has been an organic gardener since 1998. After graduating from Weber State University in 1998 with a B.S. in zoology and minors in both botany and chemistry, Celia decided that she wanted a "PhD in practical knowledge," joined a farm collective, and took on gardening leadership responsibilities. After returning home to Utah she began large scale backyard gardening, teaching gardening classes, and taking as many gardening classes as possible. Chickens were a natural part in the evolution of her urban garden, and they were integrated in spring 2004. Celia's chickens have been working hard on garden bug patrol, soil fertilizing and preparation, and egg production ever since.

"Celia was awesome and oh so helpful! Not only did she advise and help me through issues I was having this season with my garden but taught me so much I can't wait to start planning for next year! Great class, very informative instructor!"
