Raised Bed Online Workshop ~ Learn how to build a raised bed and garden in our northern landscapes to extend the growing season with less weeding and more food
Raised Beds in our shorter seasons are a great way to start gardening earlier, produce more food and reduce the amount of work or weeding. Join us in this Raised Bed session to learn about choosing the right location, materials and soil/compost mixtures. This session will also explore raised bed designs, a supply list and instructions to build your own raised bed in a few days so you can start gardening the same week.
You will also learn about the cultural requirements to grow healthy plants with less watering while harvesting fresh homegrown food all year long. The best part, is less weeding and more time to get out and enjoy a relaxing garden space with your friends and family.
