Virtual Workshop, Saturday April 17, 2021, 2:00-3:30pm, $20.

REGISTER HERE (http://bit.ly/3927GfY). Pre-registration is required.

Have a small growing area? Are you stuck planting the same things in the same places every year? Puzzled about how to arrange annuals vs. perennials? Reinvigorate your garden and growing spaces by gaining some knowledge about which crops rotate well year to year, which vegetables grow next to and complement each other well, and how to arrange plants to make sure you get the highest quality fruits and vegetables possible. Workshop attendees will leave with a laminated sheet customized to your space, to sketch and plan your planting schemes year after year, as well as seed packets to get you started.

Presenter:
Nicole Tautges, PhD, has 10 years of experience in field crop production and gardening, and is an expert in crop rotation and ecological plant and soil management. Nicole is eager to help other people expand and optimize their growing spaces to grow food and enhance beauty and biodiversity.
