Saturday Gardening Seminar, August 3—Raised Beds & Drip Irrigation

If you are looking for a way to garden that is easy to manage and get the most out of watering, this is a seminar for you. Ron Knight, Master Gardener, teach you how to build and prepare raised beds just in time for fall vegetable gardening. Find out which vegetables work best in fall gardens. Using raised beds provides the perfect growing medium and you don’t have to kneel to reach the beds. By adding drip irrigation, your garden will use the most efficient watering system available, thus using the least amount of water possible.  We meet from 9-11 a.m. at the Water Education Center, 417 S. Oakes (the first yellow building after the Oakes Street Bridge on the right). The cost of the seminar is $10. There will be a drawing for a door prize. Seating is limited. To reserve your seat & assure materials, please call 325-656-3104.

 

The Saturday Gardening Seminar series is held monthly and is brought to you by The People/Plant Connection, a nonprofit organization. The funds go toward building their educational garden and classes. Join the PPC and get discounts from area nurseries and other related businesses. For information call Susan Stanfield, President, at 325-656-3104.
