Don't Miss This Opportunity to Start a Great Garden!

Farmer Shannon Raider and Gardener
Bettylou Sandy demonstrate how to
fill seedling cells with soil in our last
workshop at Common Ground.
Our Organic Gardening Workshop at Common Ground High School is less than a week away! This educational event offers instruction and seasonal tips on what can be planted in your garden now and what must wait for warmer weather. Learn how to prep your garden beds, plan your plantings, deal with early garden pests, and improve soil fertility using organic methods. At only $10 a person, this is a great way to help yourself save a lot of money on groceries this season while being able to enjoy the freshest produce you can possibly get - produce picked right from your own backyard!

Our last workshop at Common Ground, Starting Seedlings, provided hands-on instruction on how to sprout, grow, and transplant seedlings into an organic garden.  This Saturday, May 5, learn what to do with your seedlings once they have sprouted before they get too big for their containers.  Give our office a call at 203.888.5146 to register.

Don't forget to mark your calendars for another upcoming workshop on Monday May 21. Join us along with the owners of Footsteps Farm, Craig and Sheryl Floyd, to learn about humane certified and sustainable livestock farming. Since 2002, Craig and Sheryl have produce humanely raised, grass fed pork, chickens, turkeys, beef and other farm products on the 15 acre Footsteps Farm in Stonington.

And stay tuned for information on more workshops we have in the works for this growing season. You won't want to miss out on these great opportunities to expand your knowledge in the garden and on the farm!
