Event description

Description

This is a two-day workshop, from 9 am to 4 pm on Saturday, and 9 am to 1 pm on Sunday.

So you want to grow your own fruits and veggies, but you want to do it right. This intensive 2-day course will offer in-depth information and hands-on skill-building to make sure you have all your bases covered to grow a kick-butt smorgasbord, organically and in your back yard. We’ll build a compost pile, prepare beds, start seeds indoors & out, put in drip irrigation, plan your season from start to finish, and learn how to extend and preserve your harvest. Bring your work gloves, grubby clothes, a sample of the soil from your garden site, and your sense of adventure!

Includes lunch & cocktail hour on Saturday.
