Organic Gardening From the Ground Up


with Amy LeBlanc

Feb 28, 2017 at 6 pm, runs for 2 weeks

Come and learn the basics of sustainable and organic gardening. Whether you are transitioning from conventional to organic gardening practices or looking to sharpen up your organic skills, there will be lots to learn and discuss. We’ll cover the basics of soil science and how to enrich soil to produce healthy high yielding plants. We’ll take the mystery out of composting, talk about green manures and nutrient management, and get into the benefits of crop rotation. And since we all need to do garden troubleshooting, we’ll explore basic weed control strategies and common insect pests and methods of natural insect control. And both evenings we’ll save some time to talk about seed sources and everyone’s favorite varieties of veggies, herbs, and flowers. Whitehill Farm is Maine Certified Organic. Amy is a Maine Master Gardener, avid market gardener, teacher, and very enthusiastic cook!
