2019 Intro to Organic Vegetable Gardening

Mar 09, 2019 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Marmalade Branch Library


Come to this FREE one-hour presentation to learn the basics about garden design, cool vs. warm season vegetable crops and recommended varieties, soil testing and amending, feeding your plants, and expanding your knowledge about each of these topics through Wasatch Community Gardens' workshop and working labs.  A list of recommended seed companies and information on companion planting will be distributed.  Q&A session after presentation.  *FREE*

For those of you wanting more in depth information, we offer some alternatives.  Our "Organic Gardening Basics" workshop is 2.5 hours long and goes into much more detail about each of the topics covered in the one-hour free session.  In addition, students attending "Organic Gardening Basics" receive up to 10 packets of seeds for easy-to-sow crops such as cucumbers and lettuce (about a $20 value in seeds!).  

If you're really serious about digging in and getting a solid foundation in organic vegetable gardening, please consider registering for our most intensive course, "Organic Vegetable Gardening:  A Five-Part Series in Growing Your Own Food."   This series is comprised of 4 consecutive weeknight classes (each 2.5 hours long; held indoors) and one Saturday afternoon site visit to the Grateful Tomato Garden.  This 5-part series will sell out, so register early if you'd like a spot!
