While this site isn't targeted to those new to gardening, I do have some information that should help you get started.
How to start a garden - check out the bottom of this page for some books I found very useful when I began gardening (and some really good newer books for beginning gardeners).
Composting - not only is composting good for the soil, it can save you a lot of money in the long run and give you healthier plants.
Planting zones - you'll need this information when you begin researching the edible plants you'd like to try growing.
Gardening advice - have a question? Want to help others not so far along as you are? This is the place to ask questions and share your advice.
I have not taken any of these classes, but they looked like they would be right for your level!
I have an email list called "The Daily Tip" which gives you a beginning edible gardening tip every day!
