Every month, The Growing Club hosts a full day hands-on workshop to help and inspire local community members create bountiful, beautiful productive gardens. This month's garden hands-on workshop topic is "EDIBLE INVESTMENT Part 2 - Grow Your Own Veggies."
Do you want to grow your own food at home and don't know where to start? Come join us for this empowering workshop where we will learn how to design and create an ecological home vegetable garden. You'll be well on your way to growing healthy food for your family after this workshop. We will be covering a variety of topics from where and how to place your vegetable garden beds, how to create healthy & biologically rich soil, how to conserve water while growing an abundance of produce, and planting seasonal vegetables for a seasonally appropriate diet.
BONUS: This workshop is being held at the home of Growign Club Member Carolyn Dasher, who has been working to transform her landscape into a beautiful ecological water-harvesting garden with large established fruit trees and native plants.
Topics covered: Ecological garden design, soil regeneration, water conservation, seasonal planting
