URI Master Gardeners: Vegetable Gardening @ Central

URI Master Gardeners: Vegetable Gardening @ Central

Part Two of a Three-Part Series
Part One | Part Three

Vegetable gardening is an engaging and forgiving activity that requires basic knowledge of what vegetable plants need to thrive. Learn the basics of selecting a site for a garden, preparing it for planting, choosing seeds and plants, and planting them using a planting calendar.  Learn about pests and weeds and how to deal with them, and how to care for your plants.  And find out how to get help when you need it.

Free and open to the public. Register below to receive email reminders of the event or contact the library for assistance.

The URI Master Gardener Program will send an evaluation survey following the event. Those who complete the survey will be entered into a raffle for a free grab bag of seeds!

Bill Baddeley has been an active Master Gardener volunteer with the URI Extension since 2014.  He talks about various aspects of food gardening including fundamentals, tool selection and care, small scale composting, seed starting, seed saving, preparing the garden for winter (and planting garlic), and container gardening.
