Growing Your Own Veggies At Home (an information gardening talk by Nicole Marcisz) June 8th, noon - 1 p.m., Clarke 307

Growing your own veggies and herbs at home is much easier than you think. Even if you live in an apartment and you have no back yard, as long as you have a small patio space where you can put your pots and your plants can get light, then you are good to go!

This workshop will hopefully inspire you to try some container garden ideas this summer. I will share the basics of getting started, including what you will need, tips for choosing what to grow in containers, and creative ideas for growing in a small space.”

  • Why grow?
  • What you need to get started
  • What grows well in pots/containers
  • Get creative! Fun ideas for small spaces
  • Many resources will be shared
