When: Sunday September 10, 2017 from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM

Where: The Gardens at Elm Bank - Seed to Table Garden

In this workshop we will discuss both end of season garden tasks as well as planning for overwintering crops. Participants will learn about what type of debris to remove or leave behind and cover cropping and mulching options to improve your soil over the winter. Soil testing and other fall soil amendments will be considered. Finally, a demonstration will be given on how to construct a simple winter row cover to protect crops and extend your harvest season. Crop variety selection will be discussed.

Hannah Traggis manages Mass Hort's edible gardens throughout The Gardens at Elm Bank. She oversees the Seed to Table vegetable garden which produces more than 4,000 pounds of produce each year to support our educational mission and local food pantries.
