The best strategies, tips and techniques to help get the most out of your garden while optimizing your time and efforts in our cold-climate, short-season conditions. Learn about season-extension techniques (floating row covers, hoop houses), cut-and-come-again crops, variety selection, succession planting, harvesting, efficient watering, and easier weeding. Experience the strategies commercial, permaculture-inspired farmers use, then apply them in your own garden. Wear weather-appropriate clothing/footwear and bring a lunch. Participants will leave with just-picked garden produce and a reference resource workbook.
