Presented by Alison Walsh

Establishing a successful self-sustaining vegetable patch at home isn’t really that hard – it requires some time, good guidance and a plan.
This workshop will review the season and help you work through solutions to some of the common problems you may have experienced through the summer growing season. In this workshop you will learn:
- Pests and diseases – how to prevent,
- Green manure and soil maintenance,
- Managing gluts and preparing for the hungry gap
- Preparing for the cooler months, and
- Lessons learned and planning for the next season.
Backyard Veggie Gardening is perfect for a beginner to gardening and wants to learn how to grow food, and is also ideal for those who have a garden but want to learn efficient practices and useful skills to make their garden thrive. These workshops are very practical, so be prepared to get your hands in the dirt.
