About The Event
There's NEVER been a better time to grow a vegetable garden! Rising food costs, long food supply chains and questionable commercial food quality make growing your own veggies a very attractive and super-practical option. The best way to ensure you have really high quality, nutrient-dense food is to follow nature's example and use sustainable growing practices, ones that take care of your soil and respect your ecosystem. You'll be amazed at how easy it is to get started, and how much healthy & nutritious food you can produce in your own yard! In this fun and super-informative live webinar, where you'll be able to ask questions and interact with other students, we'll take you through all the steps so you can get started. We'll discuss best places for locating your garden as well as everything from soil preparation to seed selection and basic planting techniques, plus a list of the easiest veggies to grow in our local climate. We'll explore raised beds and no-till gardens, as well as some creative solutions for growing in small spaces. You'll learn tons of tips for sustainably growing and caring for your vegetable plants, all while building more food security!
