2018 Learning About Fall Gardening


**There was an error on our email newsletter stating that this class would be free this year.  Unfortunately, that information was outdated, and the class fee is $15.  We apologize for the confusion.**

Fresh lettuce and mizuna in November?  Rainbow carrots and crisp baby turnips at Thanksgiving?  Aphid-free kale in November?  You bet!

One of the best-kept gardening secrets is that you can harvest luscious and healthy fall crops in October, November and beyond with just a little planning and know-how.  At this workshop, students will learn the basics of fall planting, including which crops tend to do best during the shortening days of autumn, how to get your cool season vegetable seeds to germinate in the heat of late July or early August, how to boost the plants' productivity throughout the fall, and how to extend your harvest season into the dead of winter with low-tunnels, hoop houses, and cold frames. This is a great opportunity to ask all your fall crop and season extender questions.

Then on Saturday, October 20th, come to our Winding Down for Winter class (separate registration required) at the Grateful Tomato Garden for some hands-on experience taking down a garden and preparing it for winter and next gardening season. 

Fee for this class is $15.  Pre-registration required.
