The following was copied from the “EXETER PATCH”, April 3, 2015:
No space for a garden? No problem, well, almost no problem. Containers and Verticals are two common ways to enjoy home grown vegetables at your doorstep. New Creation Healing Center, 80 Rt. 125 in Kingston, will host two workshops this spring on this common problem.
On April 25th, Saturday morning 10:00-12:00, Master Gardener Dan Weaver will lead a hands-on workshop about building trellises and wire columns to take your vegetables to the sky. You can gain up to ten times the produce on the same ground space by selecting climbing vegetables (some may need tying assistance.) Other ideas and suggestions of vertical gardening will be presented and discussed.
On May 9th, Saturday at 1:00 Master Gardener Marge Badois will lead a workshop on Container Gardening. With these two basic concepts you can maximize opportunities when confronted with difficult space limitations. In addition, on May 9th from 10-12, Master Gardener Ginny Shannon will lead a hands-on workshop on the fascinating possibilities of planting, tending, and preserving herbs. For more information and registration please call Dan Weaver at 603-679-1808. Registration for each workshop is $10, or 15$ for both workshops.
Next Meeting – Bring It ON!
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses of pots yearning to breathe free;
The wretched refuse of your teeming garage…
Bring out your pots! Or any garden related item (book, vases, tools, etc.) that you want to swap at the next meeting! NO Soil, Cheapo Plastic Nursery Pots, Chemicals! This is a classy event. Leftovers will be donated to the Swap Shop of Betsy’s choice.
