Back to the Earth Part II - Sustaining Your Garden

Presented by Jonathan Thornley.

The second part will start with seeds and germination tips and pointers, such as planting timing to keep steady crops and companion planting to utilize space and nutrients. We'll then cover fertilizing and feeding (ORGANIC!), pruning and harvesting to get the most out of your plants, dealing with pesky critters, elusive insects, disease, and of course unpredictable Mother Nature.

So you had a stellar season, what do you do with the 500 pounds of tomatoes you have now grown and the season is at its end? Preserving, storing and the benefits of various methods will be discussed, as well as how to save and store seeds and the importance of handing down such important knowledge to future generations. Though I encourage the use of local suppliers, not everything can be, so sources will be furnished to get started, as well as what commercial produce contains the most chemicals. Again, all levels of interest are welcome from potters to plotters, share the knowledge!
