How to grow your own food

May 13th from 1:00 to $:00 May 14th 9:00 to 12:00

The idea of growing your own organic vegetables can be very appealing but knowing how to get started can be a challenge.  This class will do just that, get you started.  Here is a run down on some of the topics I hope to cover.

 

Ground preparation

Adding soil amendments

Planting seeds and transplants

What to plant and when

Starting seeds indoors

Watering

Mulching

Working with small spaces

 

We initially said we were going to charge $25 for this class but we have decided to make it free.  We are not selling anything.  We just think it’s important for people to know how to grow their own food.

 

We will limit the class to 12 people so sign up soon.  To sign up email me at [email protected] and say you are definitely coming. If you know someone who should take this class forward this on to them.

 

I look forward to seeing you soon.

Thanks, Ken!

Hi Ken, this seems like a great thing to do, both to share your gardening skills and to build local connections. From my recent experience of promoting energy conservation services for NYC homeowners and other projects, I know this can be challenging.  Can you share with the group how you are letting people know about this, and what happens at the event? Some common portals for sharing news of free community events include the weekly paper, Facebook, area houses of worship, and civic groups.  Even limited turnout can lead to positive contacts and visibility. Thanks again!
