Do you want to get more fresh and healthy vegetables? If you've ever seen your collard green plants last through the winter, surrounded by snow, you know it's possible!

Come to this workshop to learn about ways to lengthen your gardening season.  We'll discuss what to plant and when to plant it in order to get an early start on your spring harvests, as well as how to have a garden that lasts into the cold, wintry months.  You will learn about techniques like row covering and mulching, low tunneling, and the use of greenhouses.

Registered Grow to Learn gardens only will be eligible to take 15 seven-foot pieces of galvanized wire and 60 feet of row cover to make low tunnels, while supplies last. Please be prepared to take them with you after the workshop.

Please RSVP for this workshop.
