Earth Day = Fun Day!

Our first workshop was a success! The new garden sites were all enthusiastic about this upcoming growing season and cant wait to start growing. It felt like a real community.

This Saturday we are presenting at Antioch for Earth Day. We will be presenting on garden site design and planning. Megan Kennedy and Andrew Herrick will conduct a workshop that will cover basic design and planning considerations when starting a vegetable garden.  There will be two mini-lessons: one teaching about the universal, natural and human elements to consider when growing a vegetable garden and another discussing where to grow, this will include plant relationships, companion planting, space and shade. This workshop will provide beginner garden groups with the planning skills, knowledge, and confidence to design their own garden sites.
