Preview ~ March Food Group: Planning Your Garden

Are you tired of root vegetables yet?
Bethany and I were talking the other day about how winter eating is starting to get a little stale. We may not be able to enjoy a ripe juicy tomato or savor a crisp salad straight from the garden yet, but by golly, we can talk about it!

Join us for Food Group March 2nd at 7pm for an evening devoted to planning our gardens. Whether you are a beginner gardener (a.k.a someone who kills everything) or an experienced green thumb or anyone in between, you are not going to want to miss this Food Group!

We will discuss how to plan your garden this year, be it in containers or on several acres. Topics will include crop rotation, siting your garden, DIY pest control/soil amendments, seed saving, and more!

In addition to our discussion on garden planning, we will end with a seed swap! If you are interested in swapping any extra seeds you may have, bring your seeds, some containers to bring seeds home, and a digital camera (to take pictures of the seed packets).

Food Group: Planning Your Garden
Wednesday, March 2nd, 7pm
Emily's House, SE PDX (Address will be provided in confirmation email)
Food Group is FREE but don't forget to bring seeds to swap and a snack to share!

Space is limited to the first 10 people to RSVP.
We will put together a wait list and ask that those who RSVP are committed to coming out of respect for the wait list.

Can't wait to see you there and talk about all the fresh bounty this summer will offer!
