Our SPRING WORKSHOPS FOR GREENHORNS and GREEN THUMBS
are ON HOLD, for this year
CREATING THE YEAR-ROUND GARDEN
A workshop for green thumbs and greenhorns
Because of the Covid pandemic, this workshop will be rescheduled later in 2020.
This full-day workshop can help you create a year-round garden so you can raise and harvest food all year long, by combining raised beds with protective structures like cloches, cold frames, tunnels, row covers and greenhouses, and by carefully selecting the varieties you plant.
By selecting seeds adapted to our climate, starting different crops in succession,
building up rich organic soil and protecting your plants,
you can harvest food all through the year, even in the middle of winter.
Led by home gardener Dan Rubin of Perfectly Perennial Herbs and Seeds,
our workshops demonstrate raised bed construction and
show you basic steps to create your own four-season garden.
Over the past eight years, more than 640 people have attended these sessions.
This year we offered our Garden Workshops in Pouch Cove
and also in Salmonier and in St. John's at the Saturday Farmer's Market.
Learn about plant selection, seed starting, soil enrichment,
intensive planting and how to build protective structures to extend your growing season. Sessions include group discussion, slide show, seed starting, raised bed construction
and printed handout, with all materials included in the workshop fee.
