GardenSmart Workshop: Veggies 201

Veggies 201: Getting Deeper into Your Veggie Patch

If you have already begun planning your first vegetable patch or been through your first growing season, you will enjoy this workshop. It has been designed to give you a deeper understanding of your garden, and get a bountiful harvest.

In this workshop you will:

  • Learn about feeding your plants and soil health
  • Learn about timing succession plantings for more production in a small space
  • Learn about managing common garden pests

We will also leave lots of time for question and answer, so bring along your questions!
