Garden Planning

March 7, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

So you are starting a new garden… how do you get started (from either seed or seedling)?

Join Chris Kosin to learn the skills and tools that you need to start your own backyard garden.

Topics will include:

  • Selecting your growing area
  • How much space/how many plants for your household?
  • How to establish a new bed (raised, in-ground, containers)
  • How to layout/space your seedlings

Care tips will focus on:

  • Layout for optimum light within your space
  • Plant spacing/multi-sowing
  • Importance of healthy active soil (in no till methods)
  • Watering

A nod to IPM by companion planting and using pollinator plants to control pests/diseases will be discussed. We will also cover using perennial plantings and woody plants to encourage habitat and soil structure will also be briefly discussed.
