Event description

Description

We'll be in the Tyco Center unless you hear otherwise.

Kelly Orzel returns to the Strawbery Museum for the NorthEast Seacoast Unit's first lunch and learn. Bring a bag lunch and join us as Kelly shares with us old-fashioned, organic growing techniques with the artistry of the cottage garden. Impressive as they may be, traditional walled, British gardens do not lend themselves to the modern garden girl (or guy) on the go. While Kitchen Gardens, or potagers, not only look lovely, but also provide tasty fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the season. We’ll discuss vegetable patch and plant bed designs, how to prepare your soil, and stagger your crops to ensure a multi-season harvest! Kelly will share the secrets to growing beefy, heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers perfect for pickling, delicious herbs to enhance any meal and more.

Kelly is a horticulturist, active Master Gardener and girl-farmer. Her freelance work (as writer & photographer) has appeared in national garden magazines, including Hobby Farms, local newspapers, and her first book, The Backyard Kitchen Gardener, by Lyons Press became available April 1, 2017. In addition, Kelly travels throughout New England and beyond giving garden lectures, workshops and demonstrations. She graduated with her Master of Science degree in Horticulture from Texas Tech University in 2008. Kelly has also appeared on local television stations hawking the virtues of gardening and growing.
