Home Gardening and Preserving 101

Yes, even though the snow is scheduled to return this week, we've still got dreams of garden greens in our minds! And you're thinking what we're thinking -- that the perfect antidote to the winter blues would be planning your garden -- you're not too late!

This Thursday, February 25, at 6:30 PM in the Local Roots Market building, Melinda Hill from OSU Extension will begin the Home Gardening and Preserving 101 series. (Co-leader of the series, Ron Becker, may not be able to make this workshop.) This first of three sessions covers what you need to know in planning your garden this year.

The following two sessions in the series will be:

--Thursday, May 6, 6:30 PM, Planting the garden
--Thursday, July 15, 6:30 PM, Preserving the harvest

This series earned an enthusiastic response when it was held at the Wayne County Public Library last year, so don't miss it at Local Roots! You still have time to register by emailing events (AT) localrootswooster (DOT) com.

Cost for this session is $5 for Local Roots members and $10 for non-members. Cost for the three-part series is $10 for Local Roots members and $20 for non-members.

This year, get growing with Local Roots!
