Cool-Season Gardening: Growing Fall & Winter Edibles with Bill Thorness
According to Seattle writer and gardener, Bill Thorness, those of us growing in the cool climate surrounding Puget Sound can harvest delicious food all year round.

Developed over many years of trial and error, Thorness' tips, tricks, and techniques include season extension, proper timing and variety selection as well as sustainable, year-round soil improvement strategies. Best of all, he loves to share what he's learned over the years with gardeners around the Sound.

The Growing Groceries program is proud to present an engaging evening with Bill Thorness, Wednesday, June 3, 2015 7:00-9:30 pm, on one of his favorite topics, Cool-Season Gardening: Growing Fall & Winter Edibles. Location is WSU Snohomish County Extension's Cougar Auditorium in McCollum Park, 600 128th St SE, Everett, WA.

As the author of two edible gardening books, Cool Season Gardener: Extend the Harvest, Plan Ahead and Grow Vegetables Year Round and Edible Heirlooms: Heritage Vegetables for the Maritime Garden, Thorness is well-versed in the challenges and rewards to year-round food gardening in the maritime northwest.

A 2014 Sustainable Hero, Thorness' credits include a cycling guidebook, numerous articles on a variety of topics, and a distinguished career as an editor both independently and as an instructor for the University of Washington. He also maintains a delightful and informative gardening blog at CoolSeasonGardener.com.  In addition, there will be copies of Thorness' books for sale after his talk, $20 cash or check.
