Growing Food 101: Extend the Growing Season

Gardening season isn’t over! There’s still plenty you can plant now to ensure your garden produces year-round.

The Richmond Poverty Response Committee is offering information on how to extend the growing season (a.k.a. winter gardening). Learn how to select varieties of vegetables that will withstand the colder, wetter weather, and time their planting so they produce through the fall and winter.

Simple season extension techniques such as raised beds, row cover, cloches, and cold frames will be discussed and demonstrated. And, participants will go home with a few winter vegetable seedlings for their own gardens.

Saturday, July 25th
