Vegetable Garden Planning with Greensgrow’s Farmer Katelyn

April 2, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Registration Required. Get your garden planned now for a more successful season with Greensgrow’s Farmer Katelyn. The workshop will focus on how to best use the space in your backyard or community plot for a healthy and productive vegetable garden through 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. She will go over seasonal transitions and how to incorporate best methods for weed control, watering and composting into your garden plan.

You’ll take a tour of the Greensgrow high tunnel to see how we put these methods to work here on the farm. Everyone will get a handout to take home that includes tips from the class as well as a planting schedule, seasonal garden ideas, and some room to start planning your beds.

Katelyn is the Lead Farmer at Greensgrow, heading into her second season as our farmer. She studied Environmental Science at Dickinson College, where she also got her start in sustainable farming at the college’s Organic farm. After a few seasons of farm apprenticeships, she decided to take the plunge and move into Philadelphia to navigate the world of urban farming.

PLEASE NOTE: Cancellations within 72 hours of the start of class are nonrefundable or transferable. Workshop refunds and transfers requested earlier than 72 hours before the class start time will be charged a $5.00 processing fee.
