Lay your garden to a productive rest this winter for a healthier, more productive garden next year. Join local Homesteader Joey Zeigler of Zeigler Homestead Services to learn about winterizing your vegetable garden with the use of hearty winter cover crops and green manures.
Discover the great advantages of using cover crops in the off season such as improved soil health and biology, place holding for the spring crops, early spring foraging for honey bees, improved winter garden aesthetics and more. As part of the workshop you’ll receive cover crop seeds for 100 sq. ft. of your own garden including winter rye, Austrian winter pea, and hairy vetch. Come learn how to build healthy soil with us the sustainable way!
PLEASE NOTE: The time of day on this workshop is subject to change. If you register and the time changes, you'll be updated immediately.
