About the event

October  is a time for returning inward and thinking about nourishing the soil  for the garden in the year to come.  It is time for parts of the garden  to go to bed for the winter.  This class will highlight soil building  methods including mulches, composting, leaf mold and more.  We will  discuss types of cover crops for building soil tilth and fixing  nitrogen.  Garlic  goes in the ground this month for summer harvest. We will talk about  the different types of garlic and best varieties for our region.  As  always, this class will highlight what is happening in the garden in  October, how to tend to your garden, and prepare for the coming month.   Handouts will include a to do list for the month, information on soil  building methods, and other pertinent information.
