About the Event

GARDENING ESSENTIALS – Take your produce to the next level with simple and effective strategies

This class will empower with the knowledge required to have a bountiful harvest this year. Topics are specifically tailored to what needs to be done mid-June right here in our area, so you can go home and get to work right away.

Topics covered include:

CRITICAL MISTAKES to avoid. Small things can make a big difference, some mistakes we don’t event know we’re making until we correct them and see the difference.

MULCHING. A simple strategy to save you time and increase your yield. Cut down on watering and weeding efforts with a few simple strategies. Learn how to make your garden work for you and build better soil. What to use, what not to use, how to use it, and when to mulch.

SUCCESSION PLANTING. Early summer is the time to plan your next stage of planting to ensure a bountiful harvest throughout the growing season. Learn what to plant when, and where to plant it.

TRELLISING for space. Now that everything is starting to grow, it’s time to give those plants the support they need to keep growing up. With proper trellising your garden will produce more in a smaller space, help protect against disease, and make for easier harvesting at the perfect time. Learn ways to create simple lasting supports that will take no time and are budget friendly.

GARDEN DESIGN. Everything may be planted this year, but evaluating your garden design should never be far from your mind. Gain the insights of how to be looking at your garden throughout the season and options for improvement for next year.

RAISED BEDS. Whether you’re tired of bending over, have limited space, or just interested in trying a different style garden, there’s a raised bed design for you. Learn tricks and tips to build long-lasting affordable garden beds.

PLANT WHAT YOU EAT. As your garden grows this summer, we want to help you in always thinking about what you enjoy eating, that’s why we do this after all. What are you growing that isn’t being used, what are you buying that you could be growing, and what’s suitable for your area that you may want to try.

Who is this class for? Beginner and intermediate gardener alike. There’s something for everyone here, whether you’re just learning or have been growing for years and want to step things up this season.

What you need to bring. Just your own keen sense of learning and a positive attitude!
