Did you miss our raised bed workshop this spring? Here’s your chance to join us Saturday, November 11th from 9 am to noon for a hands-on raised bed workshop for all skill levels at the Grayson LandCare/IFM office at 108 Courthouse Street. Cost is $10 and light refreshments will be served.
Plan to join us Saturday April 1st from 10 am to 2 pm for a potluck lunch and a hands on raised bed workshop for all skill levels at the Grayson National Bank conference center in the Gywnn shopping center next to FoodCity
. We’ll talk about planting dates, spacing, interplanting and succession plantings. Using information from the best national and local gardeners you’ll learn to apply these techniques to a single raised bed or a full sized market garden. Hope to see you then!
