Winterize Your Veggie Garden with Hannah Madrone

Winter is coming. But don’t worry – with the right care, your veggie garden can power right through our coldest months. 

Learn how to care for your overwintering veggies so that you can harvest them all winter long or keep them happy until spring. Any beds or pots that won’t be put to work until next spring also need a little fall love. 

We’ll discuss cover crops, mulch, and other ways of protecting your soil so that it can stay in tip-top shape until spring.

Hands-On Mason Bee Fall Care Seminar with Ray Strelecki
Our gentle native Mason Bees have a much better survival and reproduction rate if given a little TLC in the fall. Ray will bring in actual bee houses with live (dormant) Mason Bees and first demonstrate, then let you practice, basic fall Mason bee care. Learn how to remove cocoons from the bee houses without harming the dormant bees, how to clean the blocks, and how to clean the cocoons. Ray will also talk about how to deal with insect invaders (such as hornets) that sometimes like to try overwintering in bee houses. 

Free, but class size is limited to allow everyone opportunity to practice.
