Getting a Start on Your Garden

A new season is beginning! Do you want to be eating fresh salads and stir fried veggies from your garden in April? Would you like to know what to do now to grow lots of veggies later?

On Saturday, February 22nd, from 9:00 am to 11:00 am learn about this early part of the growing season with

  • practical and timely tips on garden planning
  • soil preparation
  • seed selection
  • growing starts using soil blocks

We will also have locally grown seeds available for sale from Deep Harvest Farm and other Whidbey seed suppliers. The best coir fiber for making your own potting soil will also be available for sale so you can make the “Good Cheer” super simple potting soil.

Presented by Cary Peterson, Good Cheer Gardener.
Location: WICEC (Whidbey Island Community Education Center) at the historic Bayview School, 5611 Bayview Road, Bayview Corner, Langley. (Next to Good Cheer!)

Fee: $15, or donation. No one turned away for lack of funds.
