Introduction to FALL Veggie Gardening in South Florida - In Person Workshop, Saturday October 2nd
The Fall Veggie Gardening Season is almost here! We have been teaching gardening workshops for the past 7 years and while we took a break from in person workshops last season due to Covid 19 we are happy to start this fall with a limited selection of in person workshops. Our first workshop of the season will be an Introduction to Veggie Gardening in South Florida with an emphasis on the tasks and info crucial to success in the FALL. Fall is the beginning of our growing season (its the opposite from the rest of the country) so this is the perfect time of year to refurbish your veggie garden that laid dormant through the summer, or start a new garden space. In preparation for building a new garden or replanting yours consider joining our workshop, where we walk you through the most common mistakes people make so uh... you don't have to make them too!
