Fall is one of the best times of year to start a garden. The summer heat has died off and the seedlings are ready to be planted. This is also a great time to replenish nutrients for annual and perennial food production. Learn everything you need to get started on your fall garden.

Topics covered in this hands-on class:

  • Replenishing your plant’s nutrients
  • Conserving water while keeping your plants hydrated
  • Keeping pests and disease at bay
  • Pruning and trellising
  • Growing tender greens
  • Reviving a raised bed

Each participant will take home a sample of compost and a seasonal planting chart from The Ecology Center.
