Garden Season Extension Workshop

Saturday March 19, 1 to 3 p.m.

Orange Innovation Center (OIC), 131 W. Main St, Orange, 3rd floor, with some time possible outdoors.

Celebrate spring! Join Seeds of Solidarity founders and farmers Ricky Baruc and Deb Habib for a free workshop on garden season extension, including how to make low tunnels (mini-greenhouses) and suggestions for cool weather crops to get your garden going nice and early.

All are welcome. Free, no registration necessary, but the workshop starts promptly at 1 p.m. Seeds of Solidarity will have a hoop bender available to use, and participants are welcome (but not required) to bring a few 10-foot pieces of half-inch Electrical Metallic Tubing (EMT) available at building supply stores in order to bend some hoops to make season extension tunnels for their own garden at the end of the workshop. Offered by Seeds of Solidarity to help local residents ‘Grow Food Everywhere,’ and with gratitude for the use of OIC meeting space.
