Contra Costa Master Gardener Janet Miller, part of the team that runs Our Garden* and frequent lecturer on the bio-intensive method, will expertly guide the audience through the process of creating a healthy vegetable garden.
Bio-intensive gardening can reduce the amount of water, fertilizer and space used for vegetable gardens while increasing the amount that is produced. The presentations will cover a wide range of topics including: soil preparation; starting with seeds and transplants; cover crops; fertilizing; irrigation; mulching; planting times and selecting the right crops. Attendees will leave the lecture with the knowledge necessary to create their own bio-intensive garden.
There will be time for questions and answers after the presentation.
