When Time Workshop
October 8th (Friday) 12:00pm Growing Great Garlic and Onions: Garlic and onions are the foundation of many recipes where they add so much flavor. They are some of the best crops to grow for eating year- round from your garden because they store well. Join us to learn how to grow them successfully and increase your harvest.
October 22 (Friday) 12:00pm Botany and Plant Science in the Garden: There are many things we learned about in science class that are useful to know when we are growing a vegetable garden. Discussion will include plant pollination, plant names, plant families, plant responses to light and temperature and more.
