Interested in knowing more about veggie gardening? The right kind of soil? The right location? About how to prepare raised beds? About the how and when of watering? Drip irrigation? Growing fruit trees in boxes? "Succession gardening" and "square foot gardening"? About the right things for your veggie/fruit garden? Another thing: how to remedy the bugs that devour your tomatoes and the diseases that destroy your peas?
We've got the answers - or at least, the master gardeners do. The Bowen Agricultural Alliance is hosting a master gardener clinic at the Bowen Community School Community Use Room on Saturday, June 18 at 10 a.m.. The topic: home fruit and vegetable gardening. Two Van Dusen mastergardener pros will speak, then lead a Q and A session where you can ask them questions - all intended to make Bowen more self-sufficient by producing more of what we eat.
Bring yourselves, bring leaves or branches from plants that are infected or being eaten (the master gardeners will help diagnose and suggest cures) and bring your gardening questions. Exchange your experiences with others. Learn from each other. Learn how to grow more, so you can eat more of your own produce. Be healthy. Be environmentally aware. Be more self-sufficient. Be a gardener!
