Workshop Description

Crisp winter salads, rainbow carrots, fresh kimchi, and sweet braised greens are just a few of the fresh-from-the-garden delights awaiting food gardeners in the Southeast in winter. This workshop covers practical information for planning, planting and producing a garden all year where summer heat is more of an issue than winter lows. Learn techniques for using shade in summer and starting fall seedlings in the dog days of summer, as well as planning and planting enough in your fall garden for harvesting until spring.
