Project GROW Gardening Workshop

Are you drooling over seed catalogs and dreaming about sowing your early spring veggies as soon as the ground thaws? Do you have questions about how to get started on a garden project, or how to achieve better results? Come learn from horticulture expert Sarah Browning at the Project GROW Gardening Workshop, Saturday March 4, from 10-12 at the 4H building at the York County Fairgrounds.

As an educator with Nebraska Extension since 1998, Browning’s programming has focused on environmental horticulture, fruit and vegetable production, and food safety. Working with the general public and commercial green industry professionals, her major program goals include conserving water, protecting water quality, promoting local food production, and protecting human health.

At the Project GROW Gardening Workshop, Browning will cover:

  • Planting basics
    • site selection & preparation
    • creating a rotation plan
    • best time to plant cool and warm season crops
    • vegetable garden summer care
  • Troubleshooting – management of common insect, disease and abiotic problems

Refreshments will be provided and there is no cost to attend. Bring your questions!
