Vegetable Gardening with Lee Reich, New Paltz, NY

May 22, 2010
2:30 - 5:30 pm
Lee's Garden, 387 Springtown Rd., New Paltz, NY

A workshop geared to those people with little space and little time, but who like the idea of stepping out their kitchen door to pick a head of buttery buttercrunch lettuce, ambrosial Anna Russian and Sungold tomatoes, or delectable Blue Lake beans ? all very fresh, all  very organic, and all very local.

I bring to this workshop my agricultural experience with Cornell University and the USDA, my 38 years of gardening experience, and my 25 years of conducting workshops.

For this workshop, we?ll cover such things as site selection, initial  soil preparation, maintaining a healthy soil, avoiding pest problems  (leafy, furry, slimy, and pretty pests), what vegetables are most  worth growing, when to sow seeds, what to (and not to) transplant  rather than sow directly, how to plant seeds and transplants . . . and  anything else needed so that you can leave
this workshop a better  vegetable gardener.

Even if you don?t have a garden, it?s not too late to start one for this season! Do it for good eating, for fresh air and sunshine, for pleasant and rewarding exercise, and because it?s interesting and fun!

Cost: $35 before 5/18, $40 otherwise
