Learn how to grow fruits and vegetables organically in your home garden! You’ll be saving money at the grocery store while contributing to the healthy lifestyle of your family by reaping the nutritional benefits of eating fresh-grown produce. Vegetable gardens enhance the appearance of any yard and provide a fun activity for all ages. This class focuses on seasonal production and covers a variety of topics.
This is the breakdown for the Organic Fruit & Vegetable Gardening workshop Saturday, December 14th, led by Jill Morganelli, Horticultural Curator at the L.A. County Arboretum.
Gopher-proof your planting bed, learn about soil building and irrigation, winter crops and companion planting, winter weeds and insects, and learn to identify winter diseases and then how to treat them (and hopefully even prevent them). During this winter chill you may need to garden wearing a scarf, a hat and a snow jacket, but there’s lots to get to—and enjoy—in your winter garden.
