Fall Market Garden Workshop for Veterans

A Free Workshop for Veterans interested in homesteading and market gardening…

A Capstone Project for the TC3 Sustainable Farming and Food Systems

This veteran-focused workshop will cover everything you need to know about the preparation and planting of a fall vegetable garden. Whether growing food for the family or preparing to sell for a Fall Market or farmstand, home gardens are a great way to provide for you and your family. The workshop will guide beginning homesteaders and gardeners through the process of choosing the best crops for fall production, preparing the garden, and proper growing techniques. In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn about: site assessment and bed preparation, direct seeding and transplanting, organic pest and weed control, mulching, and more. The workshop includes a free lunch at the Legion. Come join your fellow veterans to learn about growing, share ideas, and help grow a strong network of Veteran Growers.
