Canceled.

Farmer Tany will focus on how to grow as much food as possible in whatever space is available to you. By staggering your planting dates, learning which crops grow well together, and how to time your harvest, succession planting is the practice of making sure your garden produces a bounty all season long.

Workshop participants will walk away with the knowledge of how to continue to make the most of their gardening space as the season progresses into the late summer and fall weather.

Some of the topics covered will be:

  • Understanding New England Weather
  • Choosing Seeds and Seedlings
  • Creating a Crop Map
  • Succession Planting
