This workshop is for anyone who wants to start a vegetable garden, incorporating basic skills for new gardeners. Topics covered will include: planning the garden (what goes where and when), preparing the soil, fencing the garden, planting and raising seedlings, companion planting, making and using compost, and weeding and mulching. Participants will walk away with the information and hands-on experience they need to get started this spring in their own garden.
The general context will be that of organic and biodynamic gardening, although details about specific biodynamic practices will not be included. The workshop is highly recommended for those without previous gardening experience who are interested in attending the Pfeiffer Center's One-Year Part-Time Training in Biodynamics.
