June completes our planting of the summer vegetable garden and it is time to focus on maximizing the harvest. For the urban gardener, this may mean optimizing a small space to produce as much food as possible. Yields can be compromised by pests in the garden. Marisha will share pictures to help identify pests in the garden and offer ways to discourage them. We will discuss which plants are affected by which pests. It is also a good time to consider options for conserving water as June may be a dry month. This class will also cover trellising techniques and considerations for various vegetable varieties.
These classes are available as a five class series ($100) or as individual events ($25 each). 20% off discount for People's Food Coop members – just be in touch with Marisha by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to get the discount code.
