Sundays 2-3:30PM ~ Free and open to the public

This year the Winter Gardening Workshops will be adding a new “hands-on” component. The first four workshops, as usual, will all focus on various aspects of vegetable gardening. At the fifth optional workshop participants will be invited to bring their own detailed garden plan based on the information presented at the first four sessions. A number of Master Gardeners will be present to review each plan and make individualized suggestions. The sixth and final workshop will be a fundraiser for the Tom Settlemire Community Garden and will feature a presentation by Master Preservers on all aspects of food preservation.
