Enjoy home-grown fresh vegetables year round. Discover how many cool-weather crops can be grown in simple structures that are easy and inexpensive to build. Did you know that winter-grown vegetables are delicious and healthier than those grown during the traditional growing season? This workshop highlights crops that grow best in winter. You will also learn about types of structures suitable for winter growing, discuss soil preparation and amendments and explore techniques for starting seeds, planting, harvesting, and natural pest control.
