Growing Food in Florida

Food Garden Planning Workshop

The time to start your fall vegetable and herb gardens is just around the corner! If you'd like some guidance to prepare for this growing season, then we're here to help.

Our Food Garden Planning Workshop is designed to help people learn the best way to utilize their current garden space or patio pots for the upcoming growing season. Topics will include space utilization, basic design/layout, companion planting, which veggies are best started from seed and which things are best from starter plants. Though this will begin as a group workshop, we'll be happy to assist attendees individually as well. All Shadowood workshops are designed for those who wish to garden organically. This workshop is for adults. Bring a pad, pencil and any seed packets you've already purchased. We strongly advise waiting to purchase seeds until AFTER you attend the workshop, since most people have the tendency to over buy. Note that retail, organic growing supplies such as soils, seeds, plant labels, etc. are available for sale here at the farm.

We'll offer the exact same workshop TWICE. The fee is $10 per person plus online service charges. Advanced ONLINE Registration is REQUIRED 24 hours prior to the workshop.

The second option is for Saturday, August 5th from 10 until 11 AM. To purchase tickets, click here.
