May 7th - Warm-Season Crops, Edible Flowers, and Attracting Pollinators
In May, the weather typically gets warmer and many flowers begin to bloom. We will discuss reliable varieties of warm season crops to grow in your garden and ways to maximize microclimate and production. Many of these plants require insects for pollination. You will learn about pollination, pollinator insects, and flowers that are useful for attracting these special critters. Many of these flowers have multifunctions. We will highlight edible flowers, their functions in landscapes, and recipes. Each participant will leave with a planting plan for their warm season crops and a personalized strategy for attracting pollinators in their garden.
This class is available here individually, or as a whole series of five classes ($100, must sign up by Feb 5th). RSVP on this page for the individual session described below, or click here to register for the full series.
How to Grow Your Own Produce - The Workshop Series
"Timing is Important"
This workshop series is designed to help you maximize your yields and endeavors in the garden by providing an overview of key activities to engage in at the right time each month from February through June.
