Community and Backyard gardeners, get growing at an informative workshop being offered in February by Summit County Extension, the Summit County Master Gardeners and Let’s Grow Akron. The workshop is tailored for community gardeners, but anyone with a garden or considering one is welcome to attend.
Participants will have the opportunity to choose from workshops on Winter Sowing, Small Space Vegetable Gardening, Edible Landscaping, and Integrated Pest Management.
Steve Larson, our Keynote Speaker will explore the Three Sisters Garden and how you can incorporate those principles into your own garden.
The Expo will showcase community resources for community and backyard gardeners!
There will also be networking opportunities with other gardeners, Expo participants, OSU Extension, Summit County Master Gardeners and Let’s Grow Akron. Garden leaders are welcome to bring flyers to share with potential gardeners or volunteers. And everyone is welcome to bring seeds to share.
Coffee, tea, a water refill station, and light snacks will be available in the morning–please bring your own mug or water bottle. There will be a lunch break, so bring a brown bag lunch.
There will be free seeds available at the seed swap (so bring seeds to share) and a drawing for prizes!
Doors open at 9:00 am for coffee, networking, and the Expo.
The program will start promptly at 10:00 am.
Remember, this event is FREE, but space is limited, and registration is REQUIRED.
