Saturday, September 1, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm – Sowing Seeds in Autumn

Don’t let summer’s waning days put an early end to your gardening activity! Come learn which established crops will thrive in your garden through fall, and what you can still plant in September (and even October) in order to maximize your garden’s late-season potential – no greenhouse needed!

This workshop will focus mainly on cold-hardy plant selection and will also include basic tips on planting cover crops for healthy soil. Approaches for mitigating early frosts will be touched on as well. Individuals with existing gardens as well as those with new gardens built late in the season, or school gardens to be planted when students return, will learn techniques to make the most of their growing space before winter arrives.

The class will be held Saturday, September 1 from 1 – 3 at Brookline High School, 115 Greenough Street in Brookline. $15 for Brookline High School students and faculty, $25 for Northeast Organic Farming Association members, and $30 for the general public. If you have any questions about this first of NOFA’s Fall Urban Gardening series, contact Drew Love at drew@nofamass.org.
