Workshop: "Growing Garlic in Alaska"
Saturday, September 27, 2014 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (AKDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join Julianne McGuinness for a hands-on planting workshop with great tips for growing this fantastic plant. We will plant a very cold-tolerant, high-yield, hardneck variety of Garlic, "Music". Participants will taste different varieties of garlic and receive garlic to plant at home.
In trials at Michigan State University, Music out-produced all others, over 13,500 pounder per acre! Music is white-skinned with a blush of pink, and has big, easy-peel cloves. Good storage qualities.
This workshop will take place outdoors, and participants may walk to various locations within ABG, so please dress accordingly. You are also welcome to bring gardening gloves with you as participants will take part in planting.
For more information or to register, please call 907-770-3692.
