Crop Planning & Autumn Gardens Workshop to be held July 17

What’s the best time of year to plant tomatoes? Can I really harvest fresh greens through November? How can I enrich my garden soil over the winter?

Come find the answers to these questions and more at ‘Crop Planning and Autumn Gardens’ on Tuesday, July 17 from 6:00-8:00 pm at Catholic Charities (1612 14th St NE, Winston-Salem NC 27105).

Please register at: https://tinyurl.com/CropPlanningJuly2018 or call 336-703-2850. Spanish interpretation will be available! If you need Spanish interpretation, please call 336-705-8823 by July 16 so that we can bring enough headsets.

Megan Gregory, Community Gardening Coordinator with N.C. Cooperative Extension, will discuss when to plant different vegetables and cover crops, and how to create crop rotations that keep your soil enriched and reduce disease problems. We will tour summer plantings at Catholic Charities’ garden, discuss what can be planted in the fall, and demonstrate how to build a low tunnel to keep greens growing into the winter. Participants will create a fall crop plan for their gardens. You are encouraged to bring a diagram of your planting areas and records of what has been planted in each bed over the past few years.

This program is part of the Forsyth Extension Gardener series of free workshops on horticultural topics. For more information, please visit: http://tinyurl.com/FCG-SGS.
