If you've taken the time to plant a garden, then you know the pleasures that a garden bestows: the explosion of color, the fragrances that attract our wilder friends, the soft textures of plants as they caress our skin. But more than this, a garden is a place of beauty, a place to escape from the workaday world. It's here that we can savor the abundant wonders that spring forth from this marvelous land we call home.

Urban Sustainable Gardening: Fall Bed Preparation

Sat, 07/20/2013 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

Gardeners know that they always must be looking well ahead to weather patterns and garden preparations. Everything we plant this year is laying groundwork for the following harvest and seasons. In the July class, we will go over the basics of garden site selection, soil evaluation and fertility, ways to prepare a site for planting, options for building and different soil mixes for raised beds, and the use of soil amendments. We will also cover seed starting and transplanting, as well as local planting dates. Students will actively participate in open discussion and in planting a fall bed.
