Build a Bed!
This workshop will compare raised bed, flat ground, and container gardens and how each affects the quality and quantity of the food grown in it. We’ll discuss how much space you’ll need, when different plants need to be planted, whether to direct sow or winter sow, and when to transplant. We’ll also learn about irrigation, soil composition and the benefits of each type of garden. We’ll construct a raised bed garden from untreated lumber and ready the bed to plant flowers, vegetables and herbs.
