Event

Grow Your Own: Troy, NY
In this six-part workshop series, we'll be delving deep into how to get the best yields from your Edible Garden. Throughout the series, we'll be addressing the most fundamental issue of a great edible garden: Soil Health. Each installment will focus on best-care practices for your edible plants and how to prepare for a great harvest for the weeks, months and years to ahead.

These workshops will be geared toward experienced home gardeners who are looking to skill-up on their techniques and increase their food-growing potential. Everyone regardless of experience is welcome.

We'll answer questions such as: Which foods should I direct seed and which foods should I transplant into the garden? How exactly do I prune my tomatoes? Bugs: friend or foe? How can interplanting maximize my use of space? Is my plant sick or nutrient deficient? And much, much more! Come to one workshop, come to them all!

These workshops will be available at sliding scale pricing.
