Harvesting your Bounty, Winter Gardening, and Cover Cropping
The winter garden is a true gem that is too often overlooked due to rain and decreasing temperatures. However, if planned right, a winter garden can extend the growing season to the full year. Learn about low-intensive methods of winter gardening, like cover cropping, and how to prepare your bed for the upcoming seasons. This class will also include a fun cooking demo using garden goods and a celebration for completion of the Presidio Community Garden lessons, so please bring a dish to share at the end of class!
Saturday, September 13, 10 am–12 pm or Thursday, September 18, 6–8 pm
