Better Veggies with Companion Planting

Monday, August 14, 7:00pm-8:00pm

When planting in beds, it seem reasonable to consider mixing different sorts of plants. This approach is closer to the way thigs occur in the natural world as Nature tends to mix things up instead of planting big blocks of just one kind of plant. And many gardeners over the years noticed that, when certain plants are grown near one another, they appear to grow better, yield more or even taste better. These are often called ‘companion plants’. Come and learn how you can enhance a growth and performance of your vegetable favorites with companion plants and how to take care of both during the growing season to maximize your harvest.

A part of the discussion will be area farming as source of local food. A ‘Fresh Market Local Food’ guide, including Monroe County Farmers’ Market Guide 2017 will be provided.
