Grow Your Own: Gardening in Small Spaces

04/27/2024 01:30 PM - 03:30 PM ET


Please join us at the Pavillion at Atkins Field in Hardwick on April 27. Karen Brown of Dusty Swamp Provisions will talk with participants about growing food in small spaces, which can include a discussion about growing vertically, interplanting, and experimenting with closer plantings. We can also talk about proper seed starting times to help our little seedlings grow mighty and strong as well as ideal seed starting mixes and style of starting seeds. Karen has been growing food, first on local organic farms and now on her homestead, for over 12 seasons. She has experimented quite a bit and wants to share what she has learned with you all! She will bring some applicable books she enjoys as well as sharing a list of seed companies that offer fun and unique varieties. This workshop is open to all (including kids) but we ask that you pre-register by April 25 as space is limited. Some of you might remember Karen from her popular bear fat salves workshops last year, where folks learned to make salves out of home grown herbs. As always with Grow Your Own workshops, there will be time for sharing your own ideas, successes, and challenges, and questions and just in general camaraderie among those of us who love to get our hands in the dirt and see what happens!

Grow Your Own is a project of the Hardwick Area Food Pantry and the Center for an Agricultural Economy. The mission of Grow Your Own is to increase community food independence and wellbeing through shared skills, knowledge and experience. Workshops are always free. Donations are gratefully accepted online when you register. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Bethany at:
