Grow More Vegetables February 17

February 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

It’s back!  Learn to pack a 21/2 X 5 foot raised bed with a huge amount of vegetables! It’s easy to multiply by 5 so this works for larger gardens too. This is an interactive vegetable growing workshop for all skill levels. We’ll meet at the Grayson LandCare/IFM office at 104 Courthouse Street, Saturday February 17th from 9 am to noon. Snow date is the 24th, same place and time. Cost is $15, pay at the door, and light refreshments will be served. Planting dates, spacing, interplanting and succession plantings will be addressed. 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.

In order to get the most out of the class, please come with a sketch, or even just the dimensions of your space. In addition, think about the top 5 vegetables you’d like to grow. This “homework” will give you a head start when we break into groups and design gardens for maximum production.  Start planning for a successful garden now. The class is limited to 20 people. Please email Michelle Pridgen at [email protected] to register.

The next workshop which will cover pest and disease control, irrigation and fertility will be held March 1st, same location, price, and time.  Snow date for the 1st workshop is February 24, March 9 for the second. You can take either or both classes.
