Growing Groceries: October

Getting your garden ready for the next season.

When the pumpkins are ripening, you know the season is coming to an end! Though the growing is almost over, there is still much you can do to put your garden to bed for the winter and prepare it for next season.

On Saturday, Oct. 9th at the Good Cheer Garden, from 9 – 11 am.

  • Top Tips for October and the winter months
  • Building healthy soil
  • What worked in your garden this year, and what didn’t? Share your successes and your difficulties. Gardening is a collaborative process- together we’ll figure it out!

This is the last class of the season! Let’s enjoy our accomplishments, and all our learning curves.

Presenter: Cary Peterson, Growing Groceries coordinator

Class fee is $15, scholarships  available.

Rainy weather location at Bayview School.
