Have a better garden with our free gardening workshops

Come to our free "Good Gardening" workshops and learn how to have a healthier and more productive garden this year.

Gardening Basics for New and Experienced Gardeners
Saturday, April 7, at 10 am

Our first “Good Gardening” workshop of the season focuses on key concepts you can’t ignore if you want a healthy and productive garden.

“The best plants and the best seeds will not perform well if you are not focused on the thing that supports your entire garden: soil and the nutrients in it,” says John. “New gardeners can be confused about aspects of it, but they are not the only ones. Each year I talk with at least a couple of experienced gardeners who are having poor harvests or issues with pests and disease because they have overlooked something about their soil.”

John will share his decades of experience to guide new and experienced gardeners through caring for soil, determining what it needs, and how to provide that nutrition. As always, he will be including time for questions, so come and get ready to have a great gardening year!

This is a free workshop and is suitable for gardeners of all experience levels. No pre-registration is necessary.

How to Get More from Your Vegetable Garden
Saturday, April 21, at 10 am

Even with our challenging and changing climate, it is possible to grow and harvest vegetables from early spring through late fall in the Lakes Region. Join us for an information packed session exploring techniques including intercropping, succession planting and season extending techniques. These can help you maximize how long your vegetable garden remains productive and increase what you can harvest from it. John will also share his current recommendations for the best varieties of vegetables for the home gardener.

This is a free workshop and is suitable for gardeners of all experience levels. No pre-registration is necessary.

Bugs and Insects You Should Love: Pollinators and Beneficials
Saturday, May 5, at 10 am

This workshop will explore the often overlooked role but vitally important role of pollinators and insects at the farm and in your home garden. “Some of the most important members of our field crew are not on our payroll. They just fly in to visit the plants,” explains John. “Yet we couldn’t farm without pollinators…and you’d have a hard time gardening at home without them.”

Join Kyle and Wes for a discussion of the bugs and insects you want in your garden and learn what we are doing to encourage and enlist them at the farm. As part of this workshop we’ll be walking in our fields, so wear sturdy shoes or boots that you don’t mind getting muddy.

This is a free workshop and is suitable for gardeners of all experience levels. No pre-registration is necessary.
