Description

Our summer crops are nearly done producing, we've sown our fall crops, and the first fall frost is right around the corner.  What should we be doing in our gardens now that it's October?  

Come join us as we tour the Grateful Tomato Garden and review the types of tasks we should be doing to prep our gardens for winter.  Hands-on activities and demonstrations in the teaching garden will include tearing out spent crops, practicing "chop and drop" mulching, turning in fall leaves and the appropriate amendments, and constructing a simple season-extending low-tunnel hoop house.  We'll have a tool cleaning station set-up for use at the end of class, so please feel free to bring a trowel or spade from home to clean.  Please dress for working in the garden!
