21 Acres Growing Groceries Education Series: Growing Heat Lovers in the Chilly NW – Apr 27

This series brings together beginning and experienced gardeners with speakers and topics focused on growing healthy food using sustainable gardening practices.

No matter if you only have a tiny apartment deck, small garden space, or plenty of acreage you can grow fresh, healthy food in a healthier, more environmentally friendly way.

Developed over the last several years, the program’s goal is to increase our communities’ access to fresh, healthy food by teaching the latest research-based techniques for growing food.

All classes take place on Wednesday evenings, 7:00-9:30 pm.

Our last class in the series will focus on growing the more challenging crops for our region, the heat lovers: tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and melons!

Join us to learn how Master Gardener Jeff Thompson gets tremendous production off his tomatoes, how Soil Sisters Plants & Produce owner Kate Halstead coaxes her peppers and eggplant to provide an abundant harvest, and Master Gardener Carol Bello ripens melons in the chilly environs of Granite Falls. You can find out how they do it and apply their secrets to your own garden.

Cost is $25 per person per class, $20 per class for any five or more, or take all ten for $175. For more information about classes and registration visit http://ext100.wsu.edu/snohomish/gg10growing-heat-lovers/.
