PLANT IT NOW!
Fall Vegetable Gardening
Having four seasons in which to grow here in Virginia, fall is a great opportunity to transition from Spring/Summer crops to Fall/Winter crops. Horticulturist T.J. Oliver helps us know when it is time to say goodbye to cucumbers and tomatoes and say hello to cabbage, kale and kohlrabi. T.J. describes how to plan a fall garden with plants that work best in our climate through organic gardening techniques and provides pointers for those who want to grow vegetables year-round. This class will include a walk to the Kroger Community Kitchen Garden, and each participant will receive some seeds to get them started with their fall vegetable planting.
As an added bonus, participants of this class will be invited to stay after class from 4 – 5 pm for an optional volunteer workday in the Kroger Community Kitchen Garden! This will be an opportunity to get your hands in the dirt, apply concepts from the class in real time, and have additional time with the instructor to ask questions and continue learning tricks of the trade.
