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 corp! The workshop itself will be held in the library of the Newman Catholic Student Center located at 218 Pittsboro St. in Chapel Hill. Parking is available behind the church. Plan to meet at the Church. CCCG is located nearby.

Fee: $18.75 ($17 Members). Free for UNC students
