1501 Lakeside Drive
With nights getting longer and the first frost right around the corner, the tempo in your garden will slow down, but a garden never closes. Whether you want to set up a special bed to grow cold-hardy spinach and parsley through winter, or you need ways to keep composting when it’s cold, organic gardening expert Barbara Pleasant will lead you in all the right directions in this lively seminar.
A contributing editor to Mother Earth News magazine and author of numerous books including Starter Vegetable Gardens (Storey Publishing), Pleasant lives and gardens in Floyd, VA. She will bring some of her organically grown pears and apples for tasting during the break.
Other highlights of Pleasant’s talk will include natural tick control (with and without chickens) and the best spring-flowering bulbs to plant for bees and other pollinators.
