Adult Gardening Class session 1

May 13th, 2017 10:00am - 12:00pm

Everyone loves fresh produce; it is more nutritious and tastes better than the fruits and veggies you can buy at the supermarket.  But would you like to have the freshest possible produce and be more hands on with your food?  This May we are giving you the opportunity to do both; and it can happen right in your own backyard.

In Session 1 we will be focusing on bed prep and composting; how to get your garden off to a fantastic start so that a little more work now means much less work later.  We will go over double digging, creating a healthy compost pile-what does/does not go in one, incorporating it into the garden, and preventative measures for weeds.   

There will be at least 30 minutes at the end of each session for any questions regarding topics related and unrelated to the lesson.  The cost is $30/session and $50 for both sessions. Call the Farmstand at 978-468-2277 to sign up.
