All are welcome
Event Description: 

This workshop is intended for gardeners with several years of experience, not for beginners, to help answer specific problems that you may face in your gardens.  We’ll share best practices and pitfalls to avoid for this part of Connecticut. If the program is successful we will continue to have them through the year. The August 8th workshop continues best practices for growing fall/winter crops in Eastern Ct.  We especially welcome back gardeners from our last session and new participants with cold weather gardening experience. 

Bring your own envelopes/ziploc bags for seed sharing.  Possible field trip to see a working fall garden following the workshop.  

Refreshments provided.
