Druid City Garden Project (DCGP) is hosting a hands-on workshop titled “Organic Gardening 102” to help Tuscaloosa residents troubleshoot issues that are arising in their gardens. It will be held on Saturday morning, May 16 from 10:00 - 11:30 a.m. at University Place Elementary School.
Participants will join expert Horticulturalist, Mary Jo Modica, to learn how to fight pests organically, how to problem solve when plants aren't producing, how to fertilize various common fruits and vegetables to maximize production, and how to plan your garden for secession harvests, among other topics.
Previous participation in Organic 101 is not required to attend this workshop.
“Sometimes you can do everything right to start your garden, and things just don’t go the way you planned. Organic Gardening 102 is a great resource to learn how to address issues and troubleshoot garden problems,” said Lindsay Turner, Druid City Garden Project’s executive director.
Turner says that the workshop will be appropriate for all experience levels.
There is a suggested donation of $20 for individuals and $10 for students. Contributions benefit Druid City Garden Project’s efforts to help diverse communities of Alabama build vibrant food systems.
This is the last workshop in DCGP’s spring series.
