Event Type

Ben Barkan of Home Harvest returns for “Creating the Edible Garden”. Learn how to design and create attractive gardens filled with ornamental plants and nutrient-dense edibles. This event is open to the public.

This workshop will discuss soil health, site preparation, sustainable land-use techniques, and how to maximize garden productivity while harmonizing with the landscape. With a home garden you can grow sweeter and more nutritious produce than anything you can buy in a store, but it’s essential that you start with healthy soil and learn the basics of garden design. This workshop will help those interested in growing edibles, ornamentals or both to create an inviting garden using sustainable and organic practices.
