Want to learn how to grow an abundance of vegetables and fruits without a large amount of space?
Charles & Ona B. Free Memorial Library in Dublin is joining forces with Master Gardener Debra Graff April 10 to offer a free seminar, “Abundant Mini Gardens.” The event will teach existing or new gardeners how to grow an abundance of fruits and year-round vegetables in small raised garden beds.
Participants will learn how to annually harvest two to six pounds of vegetables per square foot of garden bed; how to design and grow mini fruit gardens that include four to six-foot fruit trees, and how to use mini hoop tunnels and cold frames to harvest fresh vegetables year-round.
The seminar will help gardeners to use these techniques to save hundreds of dollars on their grocery bills.
Reservations are not required for the 6:30-7:30 p.m. event.
Graff is an organic gardener with more than 30 years of experience in growing foods in raised beds.
Since space is usually standing room only, participants are encouraged to arrive early.
