Family Fun – Starting Your Vegetable Garden
Saturday, May 21, 2022
10 a.m. to noon
Demonstration Garden Pavilion on NID grounds, 1036 W. Main St., Grass Valley
Please join the Master Gardeners of Nevada County for a free, outdoor workshop specifically designed for families with children. Today we’ll plant our family vegetable garden. Learn the correct way to plant seed and starter plants. We’ll discuss the importance of the right plant in the right place and companion plants. We’ll make garden art! Come in your planting and painting clothes.
This is the second in a series of family garden workshops. Each workshop stands alone as an opportunity to learn, through hands-on activities, about vegetable gardening activities related to that month. You may attend one workshop, several or all in the series. They are designed for parents, grandparents and children ages 4 and older. (Younger children are welcome, of course, but our limited time and space don’t allow us to offer activities for them.)
Adults must stay at the entire workshop and participate with their children. Bring water, sunscreen, hats and gloves and be ready to play in the dirt. No animals allowed.
Plant Sale Success!
Thank you to all who came out to the Demonstration Garden May 7th for our spring plant sale! We appreciate the support and hope you all had fun selecting your plants.
