Grow Your Own Food! Planting Fall & Winter Crops

September 25th, 9:00 to 10:30 a.m.

Our Coffee & Conversation events are back with a new series: Grow Your Own Food! Over the next year, we’ll be hosting talks with gardening experts about maintaining a garden and growing your own food through all the different seasons. This is a great opportunity both for beginner gardeners to learn the basics and for more seasoned gardeners to get expert advice on their most burning questions.

Our first event is on September 25th at 10:00am and will focus on preparing your garden for the cooler months. Debbie St. John, Master Gardener, and John Leonard, Mollie Spencer Farm Manager, will discuss winterizing your garden and planting fall and winter vegetables. The event will end with a Q&A and a demonstration in the Mollie Spencer Farm vegetable garden!
