Get ready for spring! We are excited to have the Carolina Campus Community Garden (CCCG) as the learning laboratory for this workshop in our Home Gardening Series. This workshop covers how to grow spring vegetables including what and when to plant; tips for growing each variety; growing your own seedlings; tips on protecting plants from freezing; and how to get a large harvest from a small space. Following the workshop, plan on staying to volunteer with the CCCG volunteer corps!

The workshop itself will be held in the Saint Francis room of the Newman Activity Center located at 214 Pittsboro Street in Chapel Hill. Parking is available behind the Newman Center. (The CCCG is located nearby.)
