Do you have spring fever? Come plan your garden with seasoned experts, and fellow community members. We’ll discuss how to select your best site (including raised beds versus in ground), and the design elements of the garden; such as plant spacing, companion planting, when to choose direct seeding vs transplants, crop rotation, and successional planting. Plus many more helpful growing tips!
