Organic Gardening Classes at the Farm

On Monday, July 18th at 7 PM and again on Saturday, July 23 at 1 PM, Master Gardener Doris Olivers will be teaching short, practical gardening classes at the Red Barn Community Farm. The sessions will cover crop rotation, plant spacing, uses of mulch, wind protection, watering and a general walk-around of the garden plots. If you're new to gardening, you won't want to miss these classes.

The Saturday, July 23 class will follow a work party (10am-1pm) at the Food Bank Farm portion of the garden. We will be planting more beans, carrots and perhaps a few bedding plants. We will also be weeding. If you haven't noticed, a lot of weeds are appearing in our newly tilled farm. Within a month, those weeds will be knee high if we don't get them now.
