School garden workshop

Tomorrow as a part of the Regional Environmental Council's spring plant sale, there will be a workshop on school gardens:

Planting Tips and Stories from the School Garden: 11 - 12:30
Stacie Brimmage, REC School Gardens AmeriCorps VISTA and participants from Doherty's PEACH Club - Stacie will kick off the first half of the workshop with tips on choosing plants and planting times well suited for the school garden. She will review USDA planting zones, average frost dates, and tips on vegetable planting and harvesting.  The PEACH Club will begin the second half of the workshop by sharing their experience in starting and maintaining a school garden. They will go over the challenges and successes they've had, how they decide on what crops to grow, and what they do with their harvest. If you're interested in learning great tips for planting with your classroom, as well as hearing from experienced school gardeners, then this is the workshop for you!

The Plant Sale runs from 10 to 4 tomorrow at 63 Oread Street.
