Saturday, September 22, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm – Fight the Frost!

Northeast Organic Farming Association’s Cold Weather Gardening workshop will provide gardeners with practical tips and techniques to help their crops fare the cold New England winter. Our goal is to strategically extend our growing season by up to three months (Mar-Dec instead of Apr-Oct) or more if we’re lucky!

Topics covered will include construction of cold frames and low tunnels; other row cover options; strategic warmth-adding techniques and more. We will briefly discuss which vegetables will fare best using this variety of season extension methods though, by the time of our workshop, gardeners should already have most of their cool/cold weather crops in the ground.  The class will take place Saturday, September 22 from 1 – 3 at Brookline High School, 115 Greenough Street in Brookline.  $15 for Brookline High School students and faculty, $25 for NOFA members, and $30 for everyone else.  Contact Drew Love at drew@nofamass.org with questions.  Sign up at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/265120.  Photo from www.waldeneffect.org.
