Get Ready for Spring: A Vegetable Gardening Workshop
with Claire Lorch, CCCG Garden Manager; Greta Lee, Certified Permaculture Instructor
Date: Sunday, February 19, 2017 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM
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 what vegetables to plant for a spring garden; when to start planting; how to grow your own vegetable 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!
Fee: $18 ($16 NCBG members; Free to UNC Students)
For directions to the garden site: http://ncbg.unc.edu/carolina-campus-community-garden/ ) 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.
