Join us for a hot cup of herbal tea (yes – it includes some botanicals that we grew and gathered on the AVLING rooftop!) as we talk about the importance of a solid plan for your edible garden that is suitable for your unique environment. Will your garden be in containers or in the ground? You can grow food almost anywhere - so, we will talk about soil and water and light and the other elements that are key to beautiful gardens. What kind of food do you want to grow? We will talk about where to get seeds and seedlings and what to consider as you make your choices. What are your garden goals and how much time do you have for your garden? We will give you some worksheets and lots of ideas as you map out your own growing space.
