Backyard Gardening Tips from Northwest Park!

Tuesday  June 22
5:30 – 7:30 pm

Whether you are new to kitchen gardening or an “old hand”, join us in the Organic Demonstration Garden at Northwest Park for FREE tips, diagnoses and recommendations from the UConn Extension Master Gardeners! Now in our fifth year as a Signature Project of the Hartford and Tolland County Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners, we provide self guided learning about growing herbs, vegetables and perennial food crops. Come see what we have in our beds and leave with new ideas!

We use organic methods, including the principles of Integrated Pest Management, from prevention to treatment. It all starts with SOIL! We are working diligently to incorporate good soil management practices such as no-till, cover cropping, intercropping, composting and mulching!

Come learn with us; sample some of our harvest and take home some free seeds!

We will observe “distancing” in our large garden space, but please bring a mask for any close-up observations.

No rain date – heavy rain/storm will cancel – more events coming up!

The Organic Garden is found a short distance downthe dirt road that passes between the Animal Barn and the large animal pastures – look for signs! For more
information, please email Nancy at nrbowden@nullcomcast.net.
