Greenwich Community Gardens will host a Fall Garden Workshop & Class geared to the cool weather garden.   Organic Gardening Expert, Alan Gorkin will lead the informative and interactive class on Saturday, September 12, 10:00 -11:15 at the Armstrong Community Garden, Armstrong Court off Hamilton Avenue.

Summer may be the high season in the garden but Fall also brings wonderful rewards.  This practical class will address planning and planting your Fall garden for a succession of greens and vegetables you can enjoy into late Fall and early Winter. Cool weather happy greens include spinach, mache, beet greens, some lettuces, arugula and Asian greens.  We will also cover getting the jump on next season’s crop now by planting garlic and shallots. One more Fall topic: surprisingly easy solutions for season extending garden structures such as building a low tunnel, cold frame, row covers and a Hoop House.  We will walk through the Garden for an informal Q and A and get expert advice on addressing the needs of our gardens in real time.

Class Fee: Suggested donation of $15.00 (proceeds support Greenwich Community Gardens) Space is limited – please RSVP by September 11,   to: [email protected]. Rain Date:  Sunday, September 13, 10:00 am – 11:15 am
