Eating the organic way, with a garden of your own, yields powerful benefits to both health and environment. This class will cover: basics of soil science and how to enrich soil to produce healthy high-yielding plants, making and using compost, principles of crop rotation, incorporating green manures and managing nutrients, differences between cultivated plants and weeds, weed control strategies, and natural insect control.
The workshop will run from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
Free but must pre-register with Scarborough Adult Ed (ONLINE (http://scarborough.maineadulted.org/courses/course/mofgas_grow_your_own_organic_garden) or by calling[masked]). There is a $5 materials fee payable to MOFGA during class.
