Red Moon Farm
Prepping and Planting the Garden Workshop
Learn about how to prepare the soil, direct-seeding seeds into the garden as well as transplanting plants that were started in the greenhouse, and promoting healthy soil microbiology and fertility in this info-packed workshop from two long-time organic growers. At the end of the workshop, your farmers will equip you with their custom mix of soil ammendments, mini-packets of seeds, and the knowledge needed for these important steps of growing your own garden this year. Come ready to get your hands dirty and take loads of notes- your teachers will cover a lot of ground! Justin and Jessica are natural educators with a strong foundation in the science of farming, and several years’ experience in child and adult education. With a combined 19 years experience in organic vegetable production, learning from them is not to be missed. Come engage in your farming community, get to know other home-gardeners, and enjoy an afternoon on the farm. Event is held in the outdoors, in both covered and un-covered teaching areas. Make sure you dress appropriately for the weather.
