Put Your Garden to Bed

 A healthy spring garden begins with a strong plan in the fall. Join us on the AMI Farm at Augusta Health to learn hands-on strategies for putting your garden to bed this winter…and how you can jump-start next year’s growth! Students will gather at the AMI Farm at Augusta Health to learn our team’s method of putting gardens to rest through the cool season; including composting and sheet mulching, as well as, a discussion of cover-cropping and season extension techniques. Students will help prepare one of the farm’s beds for winter using the techniques described, and will have the opportunity to pose any garden questions they may have. Join instructor Grayson Shelor of Allegheny Mountain Institute Farm at Augusta Health. Ages: Parents and children 12+. #R4096-10 AMI Farm at Augusta Health, 5:30pm-6:30pm, Tuesday, October 15.
