Gardening Workshop

Growing your own food is one of the great pleasures of life. More and more people are getting back to it. Last year, we held workshops on building 4-foot-by-4-foot raised bed gardens and the people who attended have shared the thrill of eating the homegrown tomatoes, lettuce, squash… We put two of the raised beds on the floor of our greenhouse this winter and have been eating from them these chilly months. What a joy it is to have fresh greens all winter long. (By the way, our favorite way to cook kale now is to lay it on a cookie sheet, spray it with olive oil, sprinkle liberally with ground pepper and some sea salt and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Healthy chips!)

Our Grow Your Own Food in Small Spaces workshops this spring are February 28 and March 7. If you’d like to join us, go to the Turtle Rock Farm website, click on Workshops and Retreats and send us your registration form. On that one-day workshop, you’ll learn how to build the raised bed, a drip irrigations system and a hoop house as well as mix that huge amount of soil (and the ingredients.)
