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.

    Jules, Would you be interested in joining the Get Growing Fest on Saturday at the Winter Market? Helen Snively and have put it together. You could promote your event on Tuesday, and share something about your favorite early crop (peas? lettuce?) and how to get going with those. Pls contact me

    I have been vegetable gardening organically for years but my practices are sloppy and there's lots of room for improvement. Particularly interested in a refresher on good seed-starting; and square foot gardening. Want to solve problem w/damping off

    This is perfect. We planted tomatoes last year, but did so too late. I'd like to get a head start and hear about what other people are planting and their successes.

      I also would like to add that this meetup topic is a great idea. I tried joining a community garden last year, but they have a long waiting list. So, I am gardening at home, but would love the kind of support and community that comes with being part of a community garden.
