Plan Your Year Round Garden

June 24 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$7.00

Join West Side Co-op Garden Center working member Terra Kram for a class on year-round vegetable gardening. Now that the summer garden is going strong is the time to plan for fall, winter and early spring crops. Timing is critical for planting and transplanting in order to have harvestable food as we move through the seasons.

We will be covering crop rotation (to minimize pests and diseases and to support the best use of the available space); recommended varieties; soil preparation and amending; tips and tricks for over-wintering challenges; cover crops and fallow land; and putting the garden to rest.

Participants are encouraged to bring in a drawing of their garden, especially indicating exposure (hours of sun).

Please note: This class is being offered twice- roughly the same material will be covered at both classes, with more emphasis in the June class on starting plants from seed, and more emphasis at the July class on using transplants.
