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.
Our Garden continues to follow CDC recommendations and state guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19. Properly worn masks are strongly encouraged for indoor class participants regardless of vaccination status. 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.
