Planning and Planting Today

This morning at 9 a.m. I will be in the Moreau Community Garden holding a workshop on the Square Foot Gardening method will be using in the Family Gardening Program this season.

Everyone is invited to come.

We will start with deciding what to grow, how to purchase plants for a vegetable garden, square foot gardening concepts, designing a garden plan for a bountiful harvest with few problems and lower maintenance. We will also have on hand the materials for participants in the Family Gardening Program to set up the beds for the season.

The goal for the morning is to have the beds planned and for planting to begin. And to set up ways to communicate about the insects we find, troubles with the plants, garden tips and we hope to build and paint some trellises that will be laden with red, juicy tomatoes in the months to come.

If you don’t have a plot, but would like one, there are a few still available free of charge. Come to the garden for an application or to check out what we are doing. The garden is located behind the Recreation department, off Jan Street, in the Moreau Recreational Park. When you drive in the park, you will see the green building straight ahead on the left side. We are behind that building with perfect southern exposure. 🙂

Applications are also available through Town Hall, 61 Hudson Street, Moreau.

I hope to see you later – Natalie Walsh
