Trough-making and artful vegetable gardening planned
On Saturday, April 13, and Sunday, April 14, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Stonecrop Gardens will offer a trough-making workshop. This two-day workshop includes the preparation of a planting trough and removal from a mould as well as advice on curing and aftercare.
The cost of the workshop is $80 (or $60 for Stonecrop members). Participation in both days is essential. Space is limited and registration is required. (This workshop is also offered Oct. 19-20.)
Also on Saturday, April 13, Stonecrop will hold a workshop called “The Art and Practice of Vegetable Gardening.” This workshop will show participants how to use seed to develop an aesthetically pleasing vegetable garden that yields a wealth of crops from mid-spring to late fall. Discussion and fieldwork will give participants insight into planning, soil preparation, essential tools and resources, and practical techniques. Participants will be sowing seed both indoors and out, drawing drills and making supports, and seedlings will be available to take home.
