Growing and Tasting Great Garlic


Dreaming of a treasure trove of chunky heads of garlic but don't know how to choose varieties for planting?  Maybe you've tried growing garlic but your harvest was disappointing or the bulbs didn't last well in storage?  

If so, then this is the workshop you've been waiting for!  Come sample different varieties of garlic in our outdoor kitchen, and get a little dirty planting a bed of cloves in the teaching garden.  The hands-on experience with clove planting depth, spacing, and orientation is just the preparation you need to plant the garlic row of your dreams at home.  In class, we'll cover soil preparation, planting hole amendments, irrigation, fertilization, scape harvesting, and more.  Garlic tasting will include artisan bread, local and organically-grown tomatoes (subject to availability - are you listening, Mother Nature?), and assorted varieties of raw and freshly-roasted garlic.  Each student will get to take home one medium head (or equivalent number of cloves) of hardneck seed garlic for planting. 

This class is scheduled on a Saturday afternoon, from 1:30pm to 4:00pm.  NO REFUNDS can be issued unless a replacement can be found to take your spot.  Class size limited, and no walk-ins the day of class.
