Cindy MoonRose and Martin Holsinger have been growing garlic for 7 years or so. There is extra and they want more garlic to be grown in Nashville ( instead of Mexico or China). Growing your own garlic is a simple move you can make towards local food production and improving family health.
ONE SQUARE FOOT WILL GROW 5 GARLIC PLANTS!!!
GARLICS CAN BE PLANTED AS A PERIMETER TO DETER GARDEN INSECT PESTS!
(just remember that beans don't like garlic or other onion, allium, family members)
This weekend will be warm, making nice weather for you to take home some cloves and soil amendment to start some garlic at your home! This mid November is about the last opportunity to get garlic in.
We will look at the Rabbit Hole Hollow Garlic patch, practice planting a clove, and discuss the virtues of garlic!
Each participant can take home enough garlic to get 12 plants (or more depending on attendence). If you want to plant more, you can purchase bulbs at stores or farmer's markets.
Cindy will be purchasing supplies for putting together a planting mixture (soil amendment) of bonemeal, compost, and other slow release organic fertilizer.
Please bring a donation for garlic, and to cover the cost of the planting mixture, etc.
Bring notebook and pen,
something to carry garlic home in,
something to carry planting mixture in.
