How to start a spring vegetable garden

Local Market Gardeners' Forum on starting a spring vegetable garden

So you want to grow your own food?
Learn from the local market gardeners… how to start a spring vegetable garden

The forum will feature a panel of local market gardeners presenting an evening of practitioner tips from 6:00 to 7:30 pm, and then answering questions until 8:30 pm.

The purpose of this forum -- and related classes, forums and tours to come -- is to provide timely and useful information for the preparation, tending and and successful harvest of single-family, multi-family, neighborhood and community vegetable gardens. These programs will be designed to assist those who want to grow their own healthy food to eat.

We are fortunate to have some experienced CSA growers and market gardeners in the greater Tallahassee area willing to share their knowledge with other folks who want to grow what they eat, and eat what they grow.
