Beyond the Backyard: Garden Bed Prep Workshop.

February 28, 2011

March 12, 2011 (Saturday):   10am-12pm. At the World Hunger Relief Farm – 356 Spring Lake Road.

Join us for our next Beyond the Backyard Garden Workshop:  Garden Bed Preparation.  We’ll discuss various methods (and the theories behind those methods) for prepping your garden beds.  Aaron Basescu (former CSA/Produce intern at the World Hunger Relief) and Bethel Erickson (HOT Urban Gardening Coalition)  will lead a discussion on no-till methods promoted by Masanobu Fukuoka and Ruth Stout – as well as double-dig methods, and rototiller preparation.  After the discussion, we will move out to the garden to prep some beds using the methods discussed (including learning how to use a rototiller) and planting some crops for Bethel’s Wedding Garden Patch!

Donations are encourage ($5-10) – to support this and other programs facilitated by the Urban Gardening Coalition.  Participants are also encouraged to bring a seasonal dish to share for a potluck and continued discussion following the workshop.
