Vegetable Garden Planning at Greensgrow West

March 23 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$15

Registration Required. Want to enjoy the most local food you can get all season long? It’s time to get planting! Start planning your very own edible garden now with the help of Greensgrow’s staff expert Ari. The workshop will focus on how to best use the space in your backyard or community plot for a healthy and productive vegetable garden that you can enjoy throughout the season.

We’ll cover succession planting, companion planting, and crop rotation practices that will help keep your soil balanced for more disease and pest resistant plants. We will go over seasonal transitions and how to incorporate best methods for weed control, watering and composting into your garden plan.

ari is Greensgrow’s Finance & Operations Manager. She has been growing food for 15 years in both rural and urban environments and supporting urban youth in connecting with their food, gaining entrepreneurship skills and developing and enhancing leadership skills for over eleven years. She loves everything food related!
