Are you interested in trying your hand at raising some food in a home garden? Cloud Mountain Farm has created a workshop just for you called “Grow Your Own – the Locavore’s Garden.” Here’s the class description from their website: “Vegetable gardening is more than planting seeds. Learn how to successfully grow a wide variety of produce throughout the year, including how to get started, planning your plantings, managing your soil and fertility inputs, and timing for succession harvests.”
Class is scheduled for March 31 from 10:30am to noon. The class is free, and no registration is necessary. Be sure to dress for the weather. Class will be held at the farm’s demonstration gardens at 6906 Goodwin Rd. near Everson. See their website for directions.
Cloud Mountain has a busy schedule of other workshops for growing fruit trees, grapes, berries, edible landscapes, and sustainable gardening techniques. And while you’ve got your calendar out, you might as well note that their Annual Fall Fruit Festival is scheduled for October 6-7 this year (2012)–always a wonderful experience!
