Get Ready to Grow Organic Workshop

Thinking about starting a vegetable garden at home? This 2 plus hour "How To" workshop is designed to help you start with a great foundation! Though our time to grow most annual vegetables in south Florida is winding down, summer is the perfect time to get ready for your fall garden. We're here to help you learn the things you can do over the next few months to give your garden a wonderful foundation.
   Already grow food at home? This workshop will also discuss summer cover crops, soil building and solarizing.
    The reason that many home gardeners have problems growing their own food is due to the lack of proper information and preparation. We're here to help you learn about creating good soil, how to Vermicompost (worm) and what style of food gardening will best fit your space and your budget. We'll also have a drawing and one lucky attendee will get to take home the worm bin we create during the workshop!
   Avoid the urge to buy materials or start construction until you attend this valuable workshop. We'll cover various styles of home vegetable and herb gardening from starting small with containers to constructing large beds. Though you can find loads of general info and products on the Internet, you'll gain a lot more practical knowledge by talking to your local food farmers!
   This workshop is designed for an adult or mature teen audience. Advance Tickets are required to attend.
