Creating Super Soil- The Secret to Bountiful Gardens – Workshop and Garden Tour

Saturday, July 15 @ 9-11:00 am
Location: Leonore’s Garden – 44 Heron Cove, Harrington
Leader: Leonore Hildebrandt

The productivity of our gardens depends on billions of bacteria, millions of fungi and protozoa, and thousands of other critters living under our feet. All food web organisms have their roles and functions as they help to decompose, retain, and recycle nutrients within the soil. We will learn more about this underground food web and discuss ways to create rich, vibrant soil. Finally, we will tour Leonore’s beautifully-designed vegetable garden.  Growers of all skill levels are encouraged to bring questions and learn from this gifted gardener.

DIY Organic Pest Control – Workshop and Garden Tour

Sunday, August 13 @ 1 – 3 pm
Location: Bear’s Den – 34 Bear’s Den, Addison
Leaders: Geri Valentine and Donna Kausen

Geri and Donna have been raising organic vegetables for 40 years.  As you tour their extensive gardens, they’ll talk about how they use crop rotation as an organic method of pest control.  Natural pest control strategies help gardeners avoid toxic chemicals. And dealing with hungry bugs by working WITH nature enhances the overall health of the soil and plants.  Come and be inspired by these amazing gardens and the women who created them.
