Kitchen Gardeners Get-Together

Free and Open to the Public.
April Topic: getting ready for spring planting.

As spring approaches, many of us are thinking about starting our gardens. Some of us are beginners with a lot of questions. Some of us have a lot of experience to share. A lot of us would love the opportunity to talk to other gardeners about our common interest.

Jules Kobek of DIO Skillshare will be facilitating a monthly get-together of kitchen gardeners to discuss informally our practices, problems, and successes as vegetable gardeners. Each monthly meeting will have a specific topic for general discussion, but there will also be time set aside for individual questions.

Topics can include: deciding what vegetables to grow for your specific situation and needs; soil fertility; insects, good and bad; plant diseases; and succession planting.

Topics will be limited to kitchen gardening: growing food for yourself, family, and friends. 

Participants will be sharing from their own experience.  There will be no formal presentations.

Not covered: commercial growing, fruit and nut trees, beekeeping, chickens, or other animals.  These are all specialized areas that requires a different set of skills and knowledge.

This will be a pilot project of three months.  If there is sufficient interest, we'll continue year-round.

Call Jules at [masked] for more information.

    How does one keep chipmunks out of the garden? And squirrels. I also have rabbits, but I know what to do with them, I think.

    I know you're getting ready for outdoor gardens, but could topic for those who don't have land, e.g., apt. kitchen or indoor room gardens-how to make this work? Does anyone use a hanging raw food dehydrator? Could you have a mtg. Sat. or Sun. aft's?

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
