Ecological Home Gardening Workshop set for May 1st
Join MMRG and Branch Hill Farm for this workshop on ecologically-minded home gardening. Georgia Elgar and Katelyn Porter of Waking Web Farm (Milton Mills, NH) will be explaining the importance of techniques like permaculture, no-till gardening, composting, vermicompost, compost teas, and more. We’ll discuss how to reduce our reliance on industrial agriculture, reduce transportation costs, garden in the face of climate change, and how to keep your little piece of the planet carbon negative!
Elgar and Porter will start with the basics of gardening and then about how they incorporate these ideas and methods at Branch Hill Farm, as well as provide valuable resources for the attendees. Please bring your gardening questions to this informative workshop.
