Plan before Planting – Growing Possibilities

May 18 at 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

$20.00 – $30.00

Before you stick your first seed in the ground this long weekend Jim Bennett will take us through the stages of expansion and contraction and how your garden can feed the multitudes or just become a place of peace.

He will share his learnings on how you can start small with pots, move to raised beds, move to hoop houses, and end up with a greenhouse you’ll enjoy all winter.

Nothing goes to waste, it is just reinvented.
