Kawartha Lakes Library presents Fall in the Vegetable Garden

Filed under: ,
August 29, 2016 - Kawartha Lakes Library is pleased to partner with the Lindsay & District Master Gardeners as they present “Fall in the Vegetable Garden”. This workshop will be held at the Lindsay Branch Library on Saturday September 10 and Saturday September 17 (same presentation on both days) from 10:15am to 11:30am.

Master Gardeners of Ontario Inc. is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to helping home gardeners.  Master Gardeners (MGs) in the Province of Ontario are experienced gardeners who have studied horticulture extensively and continue to upgrade their skills through technical training. With this training and continuing education, Master Gardeners provide expert horticultural advice to the general public.

This workshop is intended for gardening novices, but would be a useful refresher for more experienced gardeners and an opportunity for participants to ask all their gardening questions.  The workshop will cover the basics including harvesting and storing herbs and vegetables, fall garden clean-up, soil improvement for next spring and fall planting of garlic and spinach.

Preregistration is encouraged.  Call 705-324-5632 or drop in to the Lindsay Branch Library. The first 30 registrants for each workshop will receive 2 garlic bulbs and a spinach seed packet.  You must be present at the workshop to receive your free gift.

Support for these presentations comes from HKPR Health Unit’s Healthy Communities Fund and Kawartha Lakes Food Coalition.
