Interested in vegetable gardening but not sure where to begin? This is the workshop for you! Get a jumpstart on your garden plans with information and some seeds. You will meet with the Blandford Farm Programs Specialist to discuss the square space gardening technique and how you can apply it at home. There will be lots of time for Q&A plus an opportunity to glean some seeds leftover from last year’s farm production. Learn all about what you need for a garden, then come back on Saturday, May 21 to buy plant starts at our Farm Plant Sale! This is a great opportunity to get the knowledge you need for a successful veggie garden.


Note: Program is for adults and teens ages 13 and up with adult supervision.
