Saturday, March 17, 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm – Urban Gardening

On Saturday, March 17 from 1 – 2:30, Tower Hill Botanic Garden will sponsor a lecture on Urban Gardening in the education building at 11 French Drive in Boylston.

Urban gardening is about growing food and ornamentals in small spaces. Whether you have a huge yard without the time or desire to tend it all, or an apartment with no outdoor space at all, this comprehensive talk will give you tips and techniques to start and maintain a garden you can call your own.

Gretel Anspach is a Lifetime Master Gardener with the Massachusetts Master Gardener Association, a Trustee of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, and a recently-retired systems engineer for Raytheon. Gretel helped to establish and maintain two food production gardens that have provided fresh produce to the Marlboro Food Pantry for the last eight years.
