CREATING A
Kitchen Garden

Kitchen gardens are made for intensive cultivation, so they are usually smaller than traditional vegetable plots, can easily be fenced to deter deer and other critters, and they can look lovely! Mark Ragland helps you realize your kitchen garden in time for you to get your hands dirty and creative juices flowing for the spring thaw. Mark covers planning, preparation, and plant selection, with a trip to the Garden’s Kroger Community Kitchen Garden for inspiration.

Our Garden continues to follow CDC recommendations and state guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19. Properly worn masks are required for indoor class participants regardless of vaccination status. Non-vaccinated participants are also required to wear masks when outdoors and unable to maintain 6 feet of social distancing. The Garden reserves the right to implement additional safety measures. Any updates will be communicated prior to class, if possible.

All programs are subject to change.
