Feed a Family Garden
Small Space, High Yield Gardens”—we’re working on a companion growing area to our popular 9x14 foot Parking Space Garden. Our new Feed a Family Garden covers approximately 700 square feet and we’re planting enough veggies and herbs to provide all the summer produce a family of four could ask for. The plot includes a wide range of crops—from tomatoes and basil, to watermelons and pole beans. We’ll be keeping track of the harvest yields, along with any unique problems or pests, so we can offer tips to visitors growing on a similar scale in their backyards. Come to our July workshop to learn more and check out the Family Garden’s progress!
