Stonecrop Gardens in Cold Spring will offer Art & Practice of Vegetable Gardening, a workshop that promises something for everyone, from the novice to the experienced gardener. Participants will learn 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 to planning, soil preparation, essential tools and resources, and practical techniques. The workshop includes sowing seed both indoors and out, drawing drills and making supports — just a few of the ways to keep moving. Plan to leave armed with a plethora of ideas (as well as some seedlings) to use in your own vegetable garden this season.
