Secrets of Companion Planting Thursday, May 18, 2017 (6:30PM - 8:30PM)
Hosted by Tilth Alliance @ Good Shepherd Center, Room 107
Did you know that some plants grow better together? Improve the health and productivity of your garden by choosing plants that work together as companions, rather than compete for resources. This class provides an introduction to the many ways that you can combine plants to maximize your harvest and make the most of your space.
In this class we will tour the garden to see real life examples of companion planting, inter-planting and polyculture. Learn about:
· companion planting and different types of plant relationships
· incorporating perennial plants into your annual food garden
· the permaculture concept of “plant guilds”
This workshop combines lecture with an outdoor garden tour. Please dress for the weather.
This class pairs well with Outsmart Pests: Organic Pest Management offered the following Thursday. Sign up for both classes for a discount! If you purchase our individual ticket for $65, you will be registered for both classes.
