Classes & Courses

mixing container soil workshop "Debby and Russell are a rare combination of knowledgeable gardeners, landscape artists, herbalists, teachers, nutritionists - this list is endless. I highly recommend taking their course. I wasn't sure what to expect and was amazed to learn as much as I did. The whole course was well organized, from beginning to end." - MB, Vienna VA

"The course is filled with an abundance of gardener's secrets generously infused within the materials. To teach this course requires not only a knowledge, sensitivity and understanding of the relationship between soil, air, water and plants, but also of our relationship to them. Debby and Russell have these qualities, which brings the class alive. That is something you can't get from reading a book." - BI, Greenbelt MD

Watching your seeds come up is so exciting and eating food you have grown yourself is priceless and delicious." - HP, Arlington VA

Design & Installation

garden consultation "I used Prior Unity Garden to design and plant three beds in my yard. It was a wonderful experience. They asked a lot of thoughtful questions to make sure that I was getting exactly what I wanted, they were extremely knowledgeable about what could be planted and when and they demonstrated great flexibility in suggesting alternatives to the plan when I didn't like a proposed idea. Their research on what would work in my space and implementation was spectacular. They were supportive of my limited budget and didn't try to upsell me at all. They have created a work of art in my back yard and I never believed such a thing was possible! I can highly recommend Prior Unity Garden." - AG, McLean VA

organic garden work study "To learn "sustainability in action, we have been work-study students at Prior Unity Garden, a suburban organic, biodynamic, and permaculture garden. We have been preparing soil, building compost, assessing the best placement of crops, planting and saving seeds, and harvesting grains and greens. We even helped make a home for bees. Debby and Russell's garden is amazing, as it has a large diversity of leafy greens, grains, flowers, vegetables, herbs, and fruits - some of which help make up our breakfast smoothies." - JI, College Park, MD


"There is nothing out there like this. This is exactly what I have been looking for !" - LN, Great Falls VA
