About The Event
Not everyone has a personal plot of land on which to grow their vegetables. In fact, growing in containers, whether that's on your balcony, patio or outside your front door, is rapidly gaining popularity as a way for young urbanites to grow healthy food that's literally within reach! In order to successfully garden in containers, however, it's important to understand how to manage your soil and planting strategies to guarantee a good yield. In this workshop we will explore various container options, which soil mixtures work (and which don't) and various watering strategies that work well for container gardening. We'll also discuss which kind of vegetables do well in containers, and how to keep them happy and healthy!
