Ben Flanner teaches you how to grow the most veg from your small city plots!
It's beginning to feel like spring outside so it must be time to get your plans finalized for your summer garden! Head Farmer Ben will take you through all of the early decisions to make, so you'll have all of your ducks in a row as the days start getting longer and warmer. Will you need to do some construction? The class will start with discussing different types of planting boxes, and ways to work around different opportunities, sun exposures, etc. Then we'll briefly discuss soil, potting mix, and fertility, seeds to start stocking up on, and the best places to purchase what you need.
Next we'll discuss planting schedules, timing for different crops and crop varieties. Each attendee will make a diagram of their own plots, and share with like-minded urban gardeners. We'll discuss different layout strategies, best ways to plan for the cycles of the season, how to succession plant, and get the most flavor, quality, and fun from your garden this summer!
This class will take place in our indoor loft space directly below our Brooklyn Farm. Detailed directions can be found by following the link below.
