Growing Your Garden Knowledge Q&A

 Registration is closed for this event

“Stop thinking like a gardener, start thinking like an ecosystem.” 

When we begin to understand the most basic processes at play in the garden, we can begin to shift not only the lens through which we see our soil, plants, and the food we eat, but we can transform the role we play in the garden, and the role the garden plays in our life. 

This session (and future Q&A sessions) will consist of conversations around the topics and questions brought or submitted by those participating. We’ll spend time looking at relevant spaces on various areas of the farm - Bring your walking shoes, water bottle, and plenty of questions.

Potential topics covered may include:

  • Soil biology
  • Botany and plant health
  • Weed and insect identification
  • Garden design, techniques and management
  • Watering and irrigation practices
  • Harvesting and processing
  • End of season practices
  • So much more…
